PowerShellHelp install after every reboot

Post by treys » Sun May 09, 2010 4:26 am

I installed PowerShellHelp, and it seems to work just fine. (Thanks)

However, each time I reboot, the install wizard/dialog runs.

How can I eliminate this?

I can't seem to reproduce that here. What OS are you running this on?
Have you tried uninstalling and installing it again?

Thanks for the reply...

This got sticky, but is fixed.

I uninstalled/rebooted, and had the same problem.

I ran RegEdit and deleted entries remaining for PowerShell help. Like most uninstalls there were entries remaining. I rebooted and had the same problem.

I used the SysInternals utility, AutoRuns.exe, and identified a scheduled task, at all users logon, invoking the installation package from its network location. The task name looked like a hex ClassID identifier, not "human-made."

I deleted the Sheculed Task, and the problem was not present after reboot.

I reinstalled PSHelp. Logged out and back in, and, ta-da, no installation program.

Any ideas where the Scheduled Task came from?
