Always attaching debugger when starting a program in windows

24 Sep 2012

So, Im using Process Monitor to hunt down some permission or anti virus problems in windows. I notice  a query to a registry key “Image File Execution Options”. I get curious. Turns out that you can turn on a debugger when starting a program. Someone used it to control a virus outbreak, but it could be handy for other things as well.
