Autoruns is an app which enables you to view the apps which are configured to run when your PC restarts or login. The entries are displayed in the order in which Windows processes them. These are included in the Startup folder, Run, RunOnce and Registry keys.
The app shows everything like location, association and autorun entries and others that run automatically when you start Windows. You can also disable the unwanted items to make the booting process faster and smoother.
When you download and use this app, it will leave you surprised with the number of executable launched automatically.
Display auto-sharing locations
You can configure this app in order to show other locations, such as toolbars, browser helper objects, auto-start services and many more. The app works further than MSConfig utility which hustled the Windows OS.
Hide Signed Microsoft Entries
This feature of the app enables you to zoom in on 3rd-party auto-sharing images, the images which are already added in your PC.
Safe to use
Being a freeware from Microsoft Sysinternals, the app is completely safe to use and supports compatibility with Windows.
Lots of tabs
The app has about 19 tabs, including Codecs, Winsock Providers, KnownDLLs, LSA Providers, Schedules Tasks and various others, which help you to enjoy the benefits of a high degree of specificity in the offered tabs. Each tab consists of its own icon and label.
The scan options in the app allow you to set the app to enable the scan of per-user locations, along with verifying code signatures as well as checking the results online.
It is a powerful app which allows you to disable the wrong activities, so you must use it with great care. You can even hide Microsoft and Windows entries available on the Options menu for preventing such accidents.
If you want to disable any auto-start entry, simply uncheck its checkbox. Additionally, you can also remove the entry-start configuration entry by using the Delete option from the menu items or toolbar button.
Though it can be little daunting for the casual users due to its Windows utility bundles, but when you become experienced of this app or when it is being used by an expert, it works great for your needs.
