Windows 7: Window 7 Registry

Window 7 Registry

Can anyone help me with this question....

List five of the registry locations a program can register itself to be part of the Windows 7 start-up process. Do not include locations loaded when a user logs in?


Thanks !

I think these are one in the same. the startup processes are called when user logs on. these are usually run and runonce. if its not in those, it wont start on startup.

I dont think anything else can be set in the registry to load up automatically. That would probably be a security issue if it could.

Are you having an issue with security? a program loading that you cant stop? or trying to develop a program or set one up to load on startup without using run location?

D. All of the above




Seriously though:

Run and RunOnce Registry Keys (Windows)

The Windows registry includes the following four keys:
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
RunOnceServices I think is the other. Read the article

RunServices and RunServicesOnce are run in the background when the logon dialog box first appears or at this stage of the boot process if there is no logon.
I think this is what you are looking for

Dynamic-Link Library Search Order (Windows)

I'll just leave that here and provide an opportunity for some extreme extra credit (because I think we all know this was a copied/pasted test question) if you can understand how this could actually be used.
