    SafeBoot Entry Showing in Autoruns

    I happened to run Autoruns and noticed the first entry showing as:

    "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\AlternateShell" "" "" "" "6/17/2017 1:07 AM" ""
    + "cmd.exe" "Windows Command Processor" "Microsoft Corporation" "c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe" "5/30/2017 3:10 AM" ""

    I have never seen this before. I recently installed v13.80 so it seems to have popped up in that version. Anyone see this before? I don't think it is malicious.

    I have that too on my PCs. It seems 'normal' - see https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/.../cc976124.aspx

    I see it (if "show empty locations" is unticked) in 13.80

    I can't remember seeing it before but then I always have that option ticked.
