Autoruns for Windows

IF you want to stay in control of your the Programs that Auto Start in your Windows PC... You really need to get this App! No install needed. Just UnZip the file and run the "autoruns.exe" file from the folder where you unzipped it. The "autorunsc.exe" App is the Command Line version. So, you may want to just stick with the easy to use "autoruns.exe" GUI App.

Autoruns for Windows v9.57

This utility, which has the most comprehensive knowledge of auto-starting locations of any startup monitor, shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and shows you the entries in the order Windows processes them. 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 goes way beyond the MSConfig utility bundled with Windows Me and XP.

Autoruns' Hide Signed Microsoft Entries option helps you to zoom in on third-party auto-starting images that have been added to your system and it has support for looking at the auto-starting images configured for other accounts configured on a system. Also included in the download package is a command-line equivalent that can output in CSV format, Autorunsc.

You'll probably be surprised at how many executables are launched automatically!
