Windows Process Description:

The STARTCOP.EXE process should have a shortcut on your desktop in case you frequently use the Startup Cop application. Even if the STARTCOP.EXE process is not associated with the Windows file system, the STARTCOP.EXE file is important in promoting ease of use for the Startup Cop application since the STARTCOP.EXE process acts as the launcher of the application's main program window and its bundled functions.

Startup Cop is an application that houses the STARTCOP.EXE process. The program allows users to organize the applications that will initialize upon reboot. This means that when a user logs on to a computer, this program monitors the applications that run during this process so as to provide the user with information on the validity of the applications running on startup. It does this by comparing user-defined settings as to the applications that can initialize on startup and those that do not have the user's consent. The STARTCOP.EXE process along with the program housing this file are necessary because when Windows starts up, some malicious programs automatically commence. This will prevent such malicious programs to run unnoticed on your system during boot time. However, the STARTCOP.EXE process is not included in the list of this program's processes that initialize during startup since it provides users with access to the features of the program that can be customized through its application window.

Startup Cop also functions as a support for configuration for several startup tests. This adds to the Startup Cop application's capability to provide users with a means to specify precisely when a program is activated during the startup operation. With this application, programs that you need to operate but does not require to be activated right away can be temporarily prevented from launching. Startup Cop lets the user disable, enable and delete programs that automatically launch at startup. This also means that the program housing the STARTCOP.EXE process initializes upon startup, and its main program window can be accessed by executing the STARTCOP.EXE file.

Recommendations: This is a safe process. There is no necessity to remove this process or change it in any way.
