Reporting

Is there a way to monitor all program that are in Auto Run on Startup?

Path Finder

I am trying to find all programs that are set to auto run upon startup but however I've tried the registry key under Local Machine > Software > Microsoft > Windows > Current Version > Run, there are far less than what I thought it would. But however Task Manager shows much more auto run programs as shown in the attached image, how do I have splunk to monitor this?alt text

You can use Sysinternals Autoruns to see what is set to start automatically.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/autoruns

Here is a script to convert the output of that tool into Splunk or Sysmon format. It recommends disabling all of the "Hide" options in Autoruns for best results.

The "Splunking the Endpoint" session from .conf 2015 went over Autoruns registry monitoring and has a link to some configuration files on slide #8.
