Is it ok to remove mctadmin.exe in window 7
  

I am having two entries for mctadmin.exe in the startup list. They are planned as run once but I have restarted quite a few times and they are still there. Is it OK to remove these entries? Just previous to these entries were added to my startup I was operation the beta of hijack this 2.0.3 and it crash. Then there was a popup saying amazing about the program not running properly and windows was going to change the compatibility settings for the agenda. I know these files were not in my startup before HJT crashed since they were not in the HJT log.

My system :

Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600) (7600.win7_rtm.090713-1255)
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor (4 CPUs), ~3.2GHz
Memory: 4096MB RAM

Information from spybot S&D :

Located: HK_CU:RunOnce, mctadmin
where: S-1-5-19...
command: C:\Windows\System32\mctadmin.exe
file: C:\Windows\System32\mctadmin.exe
size: 0
MD5: D41D8CD98F00B204E9800998ECF8427E
Warning: if the file is actually larger than 0 bytes,
the checksum could not be properly calculated!

Since Local Packs are built-in by default in the variety of language versions of Windows 7, you may want to eliminate the Local Packs that are not applicable to the target area for your Windows distribution.
1. At an important command prompt, find the way to the OPK servicing folder, and type the following command to get back the name or directory number for the image you want to modify:


Dism /Get-WIMInfo /WimFile:"C:\WindowsImages\install.wim"
2. Type the subsequent command to increase the Windows image:


Dism /Mount-WIM /WimFile:"C:\WindowsImages\install.wim" /index:1 /MountDir:C:\wim_mount\
3. Type the subsequent command to register the packages in the image:


Dism /image:C:\wim_mount\ /Get-Packages>C:\MyList\Packagelist.txt
Examine the PackageList.txt file to find the parcel that you want to put out of action. If you do not specify a location for the text file it will be located in C:\Program Files\Windows OPK\Tools\<architecture>\Servicing. Where <architecture> can be x86, amd64, or ia64.
4. At a command prompt, type the subsequent command to eliminate a specific package from the image. You can eliminate multiple packages on one command line:


Dism /image:C:\wim_mount /Remove-Package /PackageName:"Microsoft-Windows-localPack-DE-package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~6.1.6913.0"

For adding a Local Pack through an unattended installation
You can add a Local Pack through an unattended installation by adding the Local Pack package to an answer file.
1. Copy Local Pack .cab files from your source. For instance, you can copy your Windows DVD to your sharing share.
2. Add a Local Pack to your distribution share. For additional information, see Add Packages to a Distribution Share.
3. Create a pattern set. This will copy the Local Pack to a index and update the path of the Local Pack in the reply file.
You can use the reply file and pattern set to install Windows. Through installation, the Local Pack will be functional to the Windows image.
