Driver exe's auto run after DISM/PNPUtil Import
Posted on 2014-04-16
I've tried adding Dell drivers to my .wim file using DISM, and I have also tried using pnputil to add the drivers then re-capturing the image.
But it appears, after I use either method, when the computer starts up, executable files are in the start up (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run) that call the exe of some of the drivers.
All of these Run entries appear out of box:
"RtHDVCpl"="C:\\Program Files\\Realtek\\Audio\\HDA\\RtkNGUI64.exe /s"
"RtHDVBg"="\"C:\\Program Files\\Realtek\\Audio\\HDA\\RAVBg64.exe\" /MAXX4P1"
"RtHDVBg_PushButton"="\"C:\\Program Files\\Realtek\\Audio\\HDA\\RAVBg64.exe\" /IM"
Windows at startup of loading the desktop, prompts me to Run or cancel, in order for each of these entries.
If I click "run", I guess they install. For a couple, like the Realtek one, it appears to add a system tray icon of a sound icon (separate from the Windows sound volume icon).
When I reboot, the same thing happens again, all these programs try to run.
If I delete the entries, then reboot, they go away, but the icons in the system tray like for Realtek for example, are gone.
However no devices appear to be missing from the device manager...
