    Interesting Items in Autoruns


    I ran across two Rundll32 items in Autoruns in multiple computers which I don't recall existing there before.

    I have got these too. It seems something system related.

    I looked in the Registry but cannot find any such entries.

    Here's an excellent discussion of rundll32.exe from the HowToGeek, including some interesting forensic techniques for digging in deeper and learning more about what it's up to: What Is rundll32.exe and Why Is It Running. Here's an old TenForums thread that also sheds some potentially useful light on this subject: Why is Windows Host Process (Rundll32) in my Startup?

    I hide the Microsoft entries and only fiddle with third party stuff in Autoruns for safety.
