A

"\Microsoft\Windows\MobilePC\HotStart" is a scheduled task on Windows 7 system added as part of Windows installation.

You will see "\Microsoft\Windows\MobilePC\HotStart" listed on Task Scheduler with the following information:

Name: HotStart
Location: \Microsoft\Windows\MobilePC
Description: Launches applications configured for Windows HotStart
Actions: Custom handler
Triggers: At log on of any user
History: 
   Information 2:30:27 Task completed
   Information 2:30:27 Action completed
   Information 2:30:27 Created Task Process
   Information 2:30:27 Action Started
   Information 2:30:27 Task Started
   Information 2:30:27 Task triggered on logon
   ...

"HotStart" is scheduled to run whenever you logon to your computer.

The recommendation changed from keep it enabled to disable it, since most of us do not a hot start button on our keyboard, this task is useless. Thanks for the comment from "Asker".
