Startup List
Startup Entry


This is a valid entry, and is classified as 'leave to run'.

It is either required, or typically left, to run at startup. It may be a necessary component of a legitimate program.


Item Details
Name: MSGSRV32.exe
Filename: msgsrv32.exe
Description: Windows 32-bit VxD Message Server. For more information on its function and why it's needed, see here. Note - why some people have it listed in start-up programs I don't know but I was asked to include it here. It automatically runs in the background

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.
