AutoDect.exe is part of AutoDect located in c:\Windows\SysWOW64\SupportAppXL\AutoDect.exe or c:\Windows\System32\SupportAppXL\AutoDect.exe
I disabled it in msconfig and my Telstra usb modem stick did not fire up on startup, had to be started from the menu - "C:\Program Files\Telstra Turbo Connection Manager\Telstra Turbo Connection Manager.exe". Needed if you want the modem to start up with computer

It was a part of "Rogers Connection Manager" program that was installed as a driver software and connection manager for Rogers Communications USB Internet Stick. I didn't need the software so I uninstalled it, as a result file was removed from file system and registry entry was also removed. Folder "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\SupportAppXL" was also emptied which I manually deleted.
I never delete "exe" files. I rename them to "exe_" to make them inoperable. If the file is running close it down with Task Manager. Use HijackThis.exe to remove it from the Startup menu. Then rename it. Create a Desktop shortcut to the folder where your file is located and name the shortcut "?????.exe_" so you don't forget what you have done in case you want to activate it again later. I had the "Rogers Connection Manager" on my netbook when I bought it and I "disabled" "autodect.exe" with no problems.
I had this on my comp which would not open itunes, refused to shutdown, and some programs it would not uninstall. Once I deleted it's entire folder, things worked just like that. I'm not a tech guru but I believe something was hiding in there.

Best practices for resolving AutoDect issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with AutoDect. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the AutoDect.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries. A unique security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process being potential spyware, malware or a Trojan.
