Hi

   It seems like Those entries are associated with the Adobe Auto-Updater (Adobearm.exe).

Found a page from adobe forums: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/522601

 

If you want to remove them from starting up remove the check mark next to them, that'll do it.

I am fairly sure that the thread started is not concerned or asking about AdobeArm.exe but about the numerical .exe files above it in the picuture.

Hi DauryKais,

 

Please follow the steps outlined below to remove it from your startup.

 

1. Open your NIS Client UI

2. Click on 'Performance' Link at the top bar.

3. Choose 'Startup Manager' from the left pane.

4. Uncheck the processes (.exe or other executables)  that you dont want to load in the starup process. (Use the On/Off checkbox)

5. Click apply

 

Please let us know if this solves your problem.

 

Thanks

Re: Need help!

The entries are already disabled according to the screenshot "Date Disabled" column, date 26.8.2011

 

Looks like for most of the random files they are or were located in possibly the Windows\Temp folder.

 

If you want them gone,  Make sure the files are gone or renamed, then re-enable the entries.   Now use Hijackthis, Run a Scan, Go down to the O4 listings, then tick /check those entries and click Fix.

 

The Entries will be removed.
