About once a week this program is being run automatically:
I know what it is, and what the updates are, I don't care about that. What I would like to know is how this program is being launched. It is run as a child process under
explorer.exe (as shown in Sysinternals Process Explorer), and it appears at Windows login.
I can't find this program in
autoruns (by Sysinternals), it doesn't appear to be a driver, service, or listed in scheduled tasks. It is listed in the registry in 2 places, but not in a way that would cause it to run automatically as far as I can tell.
I even checked
How is this program launched? I like to understand Windows to the level of knowing what and why programs are running and where they come from.
I think this is the first time I have not been able to determine the launch mechanism for a program. About all I can guess at this point is that it is somehow integrated into Windows Explorer desktop, but I don't see how this is being set up.
