Default Startup Help

Hi

Ever since I built this new computer, three motherboard driver items are in startup for every user on the machine, but I only want them to run on my account. The items are (from the Admin prompt on a limited user account):

CpuLevelUpHookLaunch.exe (C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\AI Suite\CpuLevelUpHookLaunch.exe)
UpdateChecker MFC Application (C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\ASUSUpdate\UpdateChecker)
AsLoader.exe (C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\AASP\1.01.02\AsLoader.exe)

The motherboard is an Asus P6X58D Premium (Intel i7 980X processor), OS is Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, rest of the computer specs shouldn't be necessary, but if you need to know something else to help me sort this issue, please ask.

Anyway, every time a limited user logs onto the machine, the prompt to enter an Admin password to run all 3 programs pops up. It's annoying, to say the least. I can't find where the startup entry is for them, though. I've checked:

CCleaner's startup management list, they're not in there.
Startup Control Panel 2.8 (32 bit), they're not under any of the tabs.
msconfig - they're not listed there, either.
Registry locations:
-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
None of them are in any of those locations.

Can anyone help me figure this out? Thanks!

EDIT: Oops, I thought I was in the Software Forum. If someone can move this, I'd appreciate it.

Try Autoruns.

It has a filter mode to ignore MSFT and/or Windows files, also checkout the Users, that's where you'll need to go to track them down. It needs refreshing after each change in settings to load/filter the new Registry section.

Alright. Isn't Autoruns the program by MSFT? I've heard about it on the forums before, but forgot about it when I came to this issue.

Well, the Find... feature worked. They're located in the Task Scheduler. Now what?

Nevermind... simply right clicked an entry, clicked Jump To... and it opened the Task Scheduler, which I'm able to edit the Trigger from Log on of any user, to Log on of specific user (my account).

Great, thanks for the tip, I'll definitely be keeping this program in my arsenal for the future!

And, to wrap things up, I just logged onto another account and no annoying popups now!

A MSFT program?! HAH, they liked it so much, they bought the company

Every geek should have the full collection of the Sysinternals/MSFT suite of tools - and reading of Mark Russinovich's blog should be compulsory!

I'm glad you got that sorted

[QUOTE=mcsmc;1629272]Hi

I know this is an old post, but you don't need to run any of the programs you
mentioned. The Update runs everyday and hasn't seen one in over two years.
The other two work with Superspeed and turbo mode. You get a few extra bumps to boost the CPU but everything you mentioned - less the update are
made to reduce your CPU. I've over clocked my board, (same one P6X58D) to
4.4 and it's been there every since. All that garbage AUSU adds to their OS is
fun for a day or two, but again, it's made to reduce heat. The Update has
the added thrill of after three years they send an update you don't know about
and you spend the next few days trying to figure it out what went wrong. Personally I don't feel any update should be on auto. Not even antiviral.
