Security Autorun is an advanced startup manager for users who want to speed up Windows boot by disabling autorun apps by modifying registry settings. It provides a user-friendly working environment and straightforward options.
Hassle-free installer and clear-cut GUI
Setting up Security Autorun takes minimal time and effort. As far as the interface is concerned, it is wrapped in a regular window with a plain and simple structure, where you can view a list of all registry areas responsible for autorun apps, as well as the start folder, services, known DLLs, scheduled tasks, and so on.
View and disable autostart entries
For each selected category, Security Autorun shows all autostart entries and information such as names, paths, component IDs, key names, target values and company names.
By opening the context menu of any selected entry, you can remove it from the Windows startup sequence or just disable it, jump to its location in Registry Editor to manually edit settings, as well as view properties. There are no other noteworthy options available here.
Evaluation and conclusion
We have not come across any stability problems throughout our evaluation, since the tool did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. It has a good response time, runs on low CPU and RAM, and immediately applies the new changes when disabling autostart entries. All in all, Security Autorun gets the job done, although it is not exactly made for first-time users.
