Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
Using System Explorer 1.5, I was disabling some of the Autorun items, like Quicktime, Yahoo Messenger, MySpace IM, etc... stuff that during the initial install set itself up automatically. Just plain annoying, especially when you sit down to install some stuff that requires rebooting every step. LOL. I prefer minimal programs booting up every time I restart.
Anywho.. there was an Autorun item named "????r" and it was listed as a USER item, and there was NOT FILE FOUND for the file path. Four question marks and a lower case R.
What the heck is it? If I can't find it's location, and I have no idea what it is, how do I know what it does? I went to delete it, and a warning popped up that said the planet would explode if I proceeded. Well, not really, but you know how dramatic those warning boxes can be. LOL.
So I didn't trash the little ****** yet, I was wondering if one of you guys knew what it was?
I have never seen this before. I can tell you that I have tweaked my operating system to run minimal startup items and I have never come across this before. I assume it is safe to disable/delete it since I dont see it after installing windows.
Let me know if ya need any more help with startup things. Ive spent alot of time on XP and Vista allowing XP to run on only 180MB ram. Also, make sure all your programs work fine after making startup / services changes.
