you don't need it, save startup time
1. rename the exe.
2. install winpatrol.
it enables you to disable any garbage that tries to write in startup. it is free.it even gives a warning that a program tries to get into startup.
i guess you got acces denied because the file was open and running. there is hardly any risk if you work like that.
Thanks to both of you.
Autoruns will probably disable it if I give approval as it asks. And it should work even if the file is running, because it only disables further startup. Renaming might not work if it’s running. But I’d like to know more about it before I proceed.
Is it shown as auto-starting for anybody else? Either Autoruns or CCleaner will show this.
You can even remove whole PowerDVD 14 because it is so outdated.
Why don't you try to disable with another program, like CCcleaner or AOS (Advanced System Optimizer). Go in the start up menu.
And you don't need this application to start with windows or run in the back ground.
You could uninstall this application and replace it with Videolan.
OK, thanks again to everybody who replied.
With so many firm opinions in favor of stopping it, I forced Autoruns to disable its auto-starting with the system. It hasn’t returned after a restart and all seems OK so far.
I still can’t understand though why Autoruns would resist its stopping.
This thread can now be closed as solved.
If you will edit your first post, up in title that shows on main forum board put the word [SOLVED]
that way we know, thanks.
