Registry Locations to Check for Autoruns


Recommended Posts

From what I have gathered, CCleaner checks

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

and

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

as well as the user Startup directories for the Startup Tool

 

The following locations contain single programs that are also executed during logon...

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Userinit

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\Wds\rdpwd\StartupPrograms

 

These are slightly more system critical entries, so if they are added, they should only appear if an advanced option for them is checked.
