Removing BaiduX.exe as a Startup Program
This section provides a tutorial example on how to remove BaiduX.exe and MovieUpdate.exe as startup programs from the startup folder and Windows registry.
The next startup program to look at is the BaiduX.exe.
I know how I got this startup program installed on my computer.
When I installed the BaiduX, 百度下吧, sometime ago,
the installation wizard automatically installed the BaiduX.exe
as a startup program on my computer.
Actually, BaiduX left two startup programs on my system, see the HijackThis report:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [BaiduXUpdate] "C:\Program Files\Baidu\BaiduX
O4 - Global Startup: 百度下吧.lnk = C:\Program Files\Baidu\BaiduX
When BaiduX.exe is running, you will see a Baidu icon in the
system tray, on the right hand side of the taskbar, as shown in this picture:
Do I need to run BaiduX.exe and MoviewUpdate.exe as startup programs?
I don't think so. I can run them manually whenever I want to use them.
So I am removing BaiduX.exe and MoviewUpdate.exe as startup programs.
1. Right mouse click on the BaiduX.exe icon in the taskbar
and select Exit to stop this program.
2. Using Windows Explorer to local the startup up alias:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\百度下吧.
3. Select and delete this alias.
4. Run "regedit.exe" and locate the registry key:
5. Delete the registry value:
"BaiduXUpdate"="\"C:\\Program Files\\Baidu\\BaiduX\\MovieUpdate.exe\" --Update"
6. Restart the system. BaiduX.exe and MoviewUpdate.exe are no longer running.
And they are not in the startup program list anymore.
