Autoruns for Windows

Some applications automatically associate themselves to run during Windows startup. This could considerably reduce systems performance and result in slow booting of Windows. This utility, a startup monitor, shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and reveals the entries in the order Windows processes them too. It could prove quite a revelation to learn how many executables are launched automatically! These programs include ones in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other Registry keys. You can configure Autoruns to show other locations, including Explorer shell extensions, toolbars, browser helper objects, Winlogon notifications, auto-start services, and much more. Autoruns truly goes way beyond the MSConfig utility which is bundled with Windows Me, XP and others.

The 606 KB Autoruns for Windows v10.07 can be downloaded at http://download.sysinternals.com/Files/Autoruns.zip
