    Startup program without entries


    Hey,

    I've installed my gaming mouse software, it does start on boot minimized in the taskbar.

    I don't like having extra icons there, and this mouse has BIOS features which it save whatever programming being made by the software.
    So there is no point having that programing there unless I want to make new programming.

    The problem:
    I can't find any entry for that program anywhere:
    not in the task manager startup
    not in the startup folder
    not in the registry startup paths, (used search as well)
    CCleaner doesn't list it there
    Msconfig services, isn't listed

    I don't mind having it there tbh, but now I'm so curious what kind of witchcraft this program is using!?

    Mouse program Zelotes C12
    Windows 10 1607 <== Fresh install last night.


    Thank you.

    Have look through Autoruns by MS to see if it is listed there:

    It might be set to start as a scheduled task...assuming there is in fact a program running, and not just a driver...

    If you look at the folder where you installed it that might give you a clue as to what to look for (exe files e.g.)

    Thank you guys, you were correct dalchina.
    Autoruns pointed out to be scheduled task on log on.

    Never thought of that.
    Thank you again guys :)
    My curiosity is at peace now.
