Internet Connection Sharing cmd window pops up at startup

Every time I start my PC, this Internet Connection Sharing cmd window pops up. It displays some commands and halts. Then I need to close it. It never used to happen earlier, but since a couple of week its happening continuously.

Following window appears on the startup and displays some command automatically.


Any idea what's happening?

Do you use ICS? if not I would just remove the startup entry. If you need the OCS service running you will need to be enabled in "control Panel" - Administrative tools" - "Services". It would appear that the service has been disabled and a batch file is asking it to start. Please can you post screenshots of the startup section in msconfig (just type "msconfig" into the start menu).

No, I don't use ICS. Also, it is disabled in the Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services.
Here's the image of msconfig->Startup

Please check this

In Windows 7 the location of your personal startup folder is:

%appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
For all users, you will find the startup folder in:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
What is in those folders?

In the first Startup folder there's only OneNote and in the second one there's WinZip. I found nothing about ICS or cmd.

Does it also show the cmd window if you logon as another user? Create a temporary test account in case no other account has been setup yet.

Yes, the same cmd window appears when I login with a different account.

@Moderators, Can you move this thread to networking section please? I might get some help there.

Edit: Thanks, that was quick.

Same problem in clean startup? Revert to normal boot after testing!

Post both attached files in 1 folder
rename findf.txt to findf.cmd (I couldn't upload cmd files).
Now rightclick findf.cmd -> run as admin
A file called FilesFound_C.txt will be created in same folder. Script runs a long time!! Post FilesFound_C.txt please. It will contain all txt,vbs,cmd,bat files on C:\ with text "116.255.163.41" in it

File Type: vbs FindFiles.vbs (10.7 KB, 6 views)
File Type: txt FindF.txt (140 Bytes, 6 views)
