Startup Entry

This is a valid entry, but is classified as 'user's choice'.

It may not be needed, but that depends on whether the user deems it necessary.

Item Details
Name: MotMon
Filename: motmon.exe
Description: Found on HP/Dell and Compaq systems (and maybe others). MotiveMonitor is used the suppliers on-line support and allows the agent at the far end to do harddrive/ram/video/etc tests on the computer. Can cause some users problems with IE and Netscape by disabling this - in this case leave it to run. You may also wish to leave it alone if the PC is still within the support period from the manufcaturer. For most users it's not required

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.
