How is setup.exe loaded?

Startup files (all users) run once - setup.exe is registered with the run identifier 'InstallShieldSetup' and the execution command 'C:\Program Files2\INSTAL~1\{9BC1E~1\Setup.exe -rebootC:\Program Files2\INSTAL~1\{9BC1E~1\reboot.ini -l0x9' in the Windows registry HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce. RunOnce keys are used to launch a service or background process whenever a user logs into Windows. Once the application is launched for the first time its entry will be removed from the Registry so it does not run again when the user logins again. Applications here are designed to be used primarily by Setup programs.
