Missing Windows Startup Files


M

mike carrington

While running Symantic's One Button Checkup, I received a couple of error
messages.

The first was: "The key, "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run,"
refers to a Registry value "SigmatelSysTrayApp" that points to "C:\Documents
and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Intel Desktop
Boards\Audio\DISK1\STACGUI\sttray.exe," an invalid startup command."

I have no clue what this is all about and would appreciate someone giving me
some information on how to repair the problem.

The second error message looks like a Microsoft issue and is: "The key,
"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVerson\SharedDLLs," refers to a missing
file, "C:\Documents and Settings\my name\Application
Data\Microsoft\MSDAIPP\Offline\h."

I've looked on Microsoft.com and can't make any useful sense of how to
repair this problem.

I would certainly appreciate some assistance on these two problems. Thank
you in advance.

Wes, I didn't get anything. Clicking on the blue, underlined string did
nothing.
Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.

This is the text from that message.

===============
I have two files in %appdata%\Microsoft\MSDAIPP\Offline


0x00000001_R with no extension.
and
HashFile.dat


Apparently the w3svc service (World Wide Web Publishing Service service)
uses this folder.


If the w3svc service is not running you do not need the files. If the w3svc
service is started again, it will recreate the files.


Some info from here...

Microsoft Internet Information Service also uses that folder. So does
Exchange Server.


There is also a virus that can be related to HashFile.dat.


I doubt that you need the World Wide Web Publishing Service running, it
makes your system to act as an WWW server.

sttray.exe
This program is not required to start automatically as you can run it when
you need to. It is advised that you disable this program so that it does not
take up necessary resources.

Delete the startup entry.

sttray.exe is the Intel WebOutfitter service System Tray icon
typically infrequently used task that can be started manually if necessary

Thanks for getting back to me, Patrick. But I don't have a file that is
bothering me in *\Offline except for a file called 'h.' which doesn't make a
lot of sense. Do you have a suggestion for that?
