Startup items

Postby aeretail » Fri Jan 31, 2014 9:28 am

Has anyone succesfuly found a script or program that can be run within d7 auto process to disable startup items permanently on a machine?
ideally with a white list / black list that could be built up as we service more and more machines.

i have had a look around online and on the forum and can't see anything

its the only thing missing from our automated servicing that makes it fully automated

Thanks
Ben

It's not an exhaustive script. I use it on my GFI clients machines to get rid of some of the junkware-related stuff I come across.

Ben, you need to check out MalwareScan inside d7's Malware page in the Pre-Removal near the bottom. that is EXACTLY what MalwareScan is for, in addition there is the Pre-MalwareScan above that which automatically deletes any items you blacklist within MalwareScan itself.
