Recommendations by Scancircle

I have scanned my computer online with

Unusual folder startup process (1)
This startup process is started in an unusual folder (e.g. a user folder or temporary files folder).musicmanager.exe (1, 0, 43, 6722)
The executable specified for this startup process does not seem to exist (anymore) and unnecessarily delays the startup of your computer.hwsetup.exe

Please advice, thanks! Best regards, Hermie

The process known as HWSetup  belongs to software TOSHIBA Hardware Setup  by TOSHIBA CO.,LTD

Probably something left over when you updated a driver.
(I did not run a scan nor would I allow the installation of their program to do the scan.)
Your computer, your choice.

Thanks Bob for your reply.

Both issues are solved by myself.

#1 musicmanager.exe is a Google program, it does not start up automaticly anymore.
#2 hwsetup.exe was solved via start > execute > msconfig.
