Hi, all.
I've been lurking for a couple of weeks, and I'm impressed. ;)
After hunting down and killing crapware on everyone else's computer in the office, I'm back on my own and found this as a startup entry:
patch32.dll, RTPRenSvr
I can't find any info on these, so I'm wondering what's going on. None of the spyware/adware tools notice it. Anybody know what this does? ;)
Thanks!
Daemoncat

FWIW: First post. Hope to be able to help someday instead of ask stupid questions. :tazz:

Is that a persistant entry? IE, does it survive between reboots, or is it a run once entry?

Typically, patch.dll is used to update software at bootup.

;) Oops! It's a run once. If IE uses it, it's probably intended to be benign. I've begun to suspect Windows being the worst Spy/Adware program of them all! :tazz:
Thanks for the quick reply, I can see you've been very busy here.
