    Autoruns is the best way to find out what it is IMO. "Program" does sound a little like a default setting a programmer would write - although personally I think I would write "Unknown" and that would be better.

    EDIT: Or (as I have) you could say "Program failed - contact DP Operations on extension x1234"

    Just a some useless info ... when creating console apps in visual studio the default code folder is called Program.cs - perhaps some developers leave it as such and compile the exe with that name...

    Right click on any attribute header and add 'Command line', it should show you what it is/was.

    Ahh. Not write then. Leave as default. Ho-hum - promote them to management.
