Startup List
Startup Entry


This is a valid entry, but is classified as 'not required'.

Typically, these entries are infrequently used tasks that can be started manually, if necessary.


Item Details
Name: HostManager
Filename: AOLSoftware.exe
Description: Quoted from AOL Beta Team, "Manages a component essential to the operation of most current AOL software, client or not. You should be able to remove it from Startup (it'll just load when Explorer is launched, which will extend load time a bit), but do leave it on your system".

This is a Startup entry, not a running process - although it may be visible in Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL) if it continues running after startup. Before ending a process via CTRL+ALT+DEL just because it is listed as an "X", please check whether it's actually set to start using MSCONFIG or another tool.

Some bad startup entries use the same names as common Windows processes, and it may be difficult to distinguish between them in Task Manager. If in doubt, seek advice before doing anything.
