Re: WehnTrust - When you have to trust Wehntrust

Any chance you contacted Wehnus about it? The "hot fix" is just to open 
regedit, browse to this key, and place the command line quotes. Minor 
problem, but I am sure Matt would have appreciated an email first.

Dear  List,

Small blurp I came around; when Wehntrust creates the autostart key
it forgets to correctly quote the string in the key and thus may
trigger an autostart of c:\program.bat|exe|com up-on reboot... [2]

Quoting [1] :
--- c:\program files\sub dir\program.exe,

In this case, the system will successively expand the string when
interpreting the file path, until a module is encountered to execute.
The string used in the above example would be interpreted as follows:

   c:\program files\sub.exe
   c:\program files\sub dir\program.exe
