  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 6 Feb 2024
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

Autoruns shows programs that run during system bootup or login, as well as entries in the order Windows processes them. These programs include ones in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce 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.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

Alternatively, Autoruns Portable is stealth and will only show the EULA once.

Runs on:Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Windows registry
Stealth: ? No
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Delete Autoruns64.dll, Autoruns64a.dll, Autoruns64a.exe, autorunsc.exe, autorunsc64.exe, autorunsc64a.exe and Eula.txt
  3. Launch Autoruns.exe or Autoruns64.exe

schemer > Stick with the older (pre-Microsoft) versions if you have them. The file-sizes on these newer ones are substancially larger...

Oh, come on—2.8 MB is "large"? Is this the '90s again? :?)

Though v. 13.93 is available here, at Portable Freeware, the MS site only has v. 13.91 . Is this version again being recalled by MS?

I'll be damned ! Sysinternals' utilities changelogs ersatz have not quite vanished, after all,
but are definitely (deliberately?) well hidden from sight:

Looks like one of TPFC's eminent updates contributor was in the know all along ...;-)

Autoruns v13.80 released 11SEP2017

SysInternals' changelogs, scrimpy as they used to be, have disappeared altogether.

See gripes about SysInternals' site recent overhaul...:-(

A very useful tool that I have used for a long time, thanks for the hard work to bring this software to us.
