Download: Autoruns 9.36 - Configure Windows autorun
PC Games Hardware offers the latest version of the autorun optimizer for download.
Windows doesn't just start itself when booting, but quite a load of additional application and services. This slows the startup down and costs performance by stressing memory and CPU - and often these aren't even necessary. But it is not enough to check the Windows autorun folder once in a while, because Windows knows a lot of places to hide Registry entries. Without special programs those aren't easy to find - and here Autoruns enters the game.
The program from Microsoft's Technet can be run without an installation and is able to list anything automatically started by Windows - you will be surprised. The option "Hide Microsoft Entries” is quite useful - if activated Autoruns only shows programs of third parties. But be careful when removing unwanted entries, because some programs depend on such background processes. Especially the virus scan is important.
You can download Autoruns 9.36 from Microsoft or from our servers if you are logged in.
