  • AutoRuns

    From the Windows Secrets newsletter (WindowsSecrets.com)
    A better way — from Microsoft, no less
    Microsoft distributes a free program that runs rings around Msconfig. Autoruns started as a freebie from a small company called Sysinternals and owes its existence to Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell, two of the most knowledgeable Windows folks on the planet. In July 2006, Microsoft bought Sysinternals. Mark became a Microsoft Demigod, er, Fellow.

    Microsoft promised that all of the free Sysinternals products would remain free, and wonder of wonders, that's exactly what happened. The latest version of Autoruns was released last week, freshly updated to handle the very latest programs, and it's still absolutely free.

    I dl'ed it this morning and am absolutely astounded at how many programs (processes) are running at startup I was unaware of. This is a "must have" for tinkerers.

      Mel,

      Comparing the above to AutoRuns isn't like comparing Apples to Oranges, it's like comparing a horse apple to an Orange Grove.

        Okay. I'll take a look at it and get back with you.

        **************************************************************

        Later on: My appologies, Gosta. You're right. It is much better and more informative.

        However, in my own defense, I read your original post as just getting a list of running process and that was all you were interested in.

        Oh, well.....
