System Configuration Utility
Just a quick question to ask if any1 knows what these actually do? I had a look my startup file to see what actually runs when the computer is turned on, but im unsure on what a few of them actually do and if i really need them.
If any1 knows what any of the following do, please tell !!!
sistray - C:\WINDOWS\System32\sistray.exe
khooker - C:\WINDOWS\System32\khooker.exe
pctspk - pctspk.exe
status - C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Connection Wizard\status.exe
tfswctrl - C:\WINDOWS\System32\dla\tfswctrl.exe
WinsysRsr - C:\Program Files\Wsr\WinsysRsr.exe
bpinstall - C:\Windows\bpinstall.exe /s

Used for modems based upon PC-TEL chipsets. Normally used for some Voice and Speakerphone functions and also for some Power management options. If you remove it you may not be able to use any of those functions

You can find almost any** startup item in the list here .
Each item has a link to what the program is used for.
I have found a couple that are not in there though...
