9 AutoRuns Screenshots:
AutoRuns is a tool that enables you to view and disable processes from a complete list of applications that run at system startup.

This kind of software comes in handy when you want to disable access for various malware that automatically run when Windows is initiated.

If you are a novice user, the standard interface will probably appear cluttered with all sorts of technical terms. But experts are definitely overcome with joy right now.

The first tab you view is entitled "Everything", which is pretty self-explanatory. It consists of Logon, Explorer, Internet Explorer, Scheduled Tasks, Services, Drivers, Codecs, Boot Execute, Image Hijacks, Applnit, KnownDLLs, Winlogon, Winsock Providers, Print Monitors, LSA Providers, Network Providers and Sidebar Gadgets.

In each of these categories, you can view the name of the autorun entry, along with a description, publisher name and image path. If you use the right-click menu on any entry, you can delete or copy it, jump to the Registry Editor or to its folder in Explorer, search it online via Google, manage it in Process Explorer (if you already have it installed), or view its properties.

All these entries are not displayed randomly, but in the order that Windows processes them. Furthermore, you can include empty locations in the list, hide Microsoft or just Windows entries, and verify code signatures.

AutoRuns uses a very low amount of system resources, and we couldn't find any errors while testing it. It is a very powerful tool, so only expert users should play with it. We strongly recommend it.
