program problem? System32\cmd.exe Runs on Startup

Hello all.

I have a new pc with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit


when every time I start it, it runs c:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe pop-up. It runs for a moment and then closes, without any visible text within the window.


I read it's an AMD Accelerated Video Transcoding device initialization issue (


If I run msconfig and look in the startup tab, there is Cmd.exe /c start "AMD Accelerated Video Transcoding device initialization" /min "C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD AVT\bin\kdbsync.exe" aml

If I uncheck it, there isn't any pop-up, so this AMD program is the problem, but boot becomes slower: from the blue screen to the desktop I have to wait 10 seconds with black screen.....with AMD accelerated video transcoding checked I see the desktop immediately after blue screen. So I prefer use this program. Question (curiosity): is it normal? Does AMD accelerated video transcoding decreases boot time?


But with this program I've always pop-up c:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe: second question: how can I stop this pop-up on startup? I have to wait for new drivers?



Any reply would be appreciated.
