    How do I view Startup autoruns and execution commands?


    Thank you for taking a look at my thread.

    I see a Startup "Windows host process (Rundll32)" rated "High".

    I am considering disabling it...

    How would I view the autoruns and look at the full execution commands?

    Much Obliged

    Open Task Manager->Startup
    Right click on the title and tick on Command Line, you'll see the whole path:

    And when you have added the column for Command line I suggest posting the info here.

    I don't recall having seen a rundll entry in a Task mgr, Startup tab. If you post the info then it might attract the attention of somebody who has seen them before.


    {Be wary of using the term "autoruns". AutoRuns is also the name of a particular utility, one that might well be suggested later on in this thread - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/sys...loads/autoruns}

    I won't be of any use to you. I do not have MBCfg64.dll or anything like it [I don't have any Creative Labs items].

    You might try re-installing any Creative Labs drivers or software to see if doing so affects that Task mgr entry. And check on the Creative Labs website that they are the latest versions that are compatible with Windows 10 [while you are there see if their support or any user forums can help you].

    Best of luck,

    Autroruns is an excellent utility for reviewing / disabling what stuff runs at startup. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sys...loads/autoruns

    This is normal to access some functionality of the shared dll by running rundll32 with the parameter pointing at the DLL file. Here's an example from my 2nd PC Logitech is using rundll32.

    thank you. I tried disabling it and restarting. Nothing seems to have been adversely effected and my usual Creative software loads and works fine.

    Creative recommended I leave the startup saying it may cause crashes, but I have experienced 0 adverse reactions thus far so ill see how it goes. thanks for everyone's help!
