Autoruns is a program which has knowledge of auto-starting locations of any startup monitor. It shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup. It includes your startup folder, Run, 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.
