Windows 7: How to change entries in the "System Configuration" window?

01 Mar 2014   #31

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Ok all done.
(1) TFC found no problems
(2) ESET Ran clean - no problems

Checked the System Configuration and have added the screen shots below. The items that I think are still "suspect" have a RED cross appended. Some of these might be genuine but I don't have the knowledge to remove them ?

Thanks to you JACEE and SLARTYBART

Looking at the data you posted, I see two system profile users (both Network) that have sidebar.exe in startup.

I researched sidebar.exe and found a MS security advisory (2012, updated 2013) that says gadgets are a possible avenue for malware to gain access to your machine.

Microsoft Security Advisory (2719662): Vulnerabilities in Gadgets Could Allow Remote Code Execution

Please run

Microsoft Fix it 50906 (disable sidebar)
in Microsoft Security Advisory: Vulnerabilities in Gadgets could allow remote code execution.

This is not directly related to the thread issue, but it is something that might cause other issues. Bookmark that page if you want to run Microsoft Fix it 50907 (enable sidebar) in the future.

The Windows error log also shows some issues that should be addressed.
Nvidia is crashing - you might need an updated driver
RADAR PRE LEAK is crashing - could be bad memory or a conflict.

Now about those entries in your screenshots.

Click Autoruns: Sysinternals Live Run on the download action bar. Autoruns should open on the "Everything" tab.

Carefully look at the objects on the list and untick any that match those in your screenshots. Exit Autoruns when you are finished and restart the machine.

Check that the startup tab reflects the changes you made in Autoruns.
