  • Released on 6 Apr 2020
  • 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:WinXP / 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

Autoruns v13.80 released 11SEP2017

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

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

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 ...;-)

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?

  • Released on
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

a-squared HiJackFree allows you to view and edit the configured autoruns, list explorer/browser add-ons, look at installed services, view all currently opened ports, and list all running processes. It helps in the detection and removal of all types of spyware, adware, trojans and worms.

Runs on:Win98 / WinME / Win2K / WinXP / Vista
Writes settings to: Windows registry. I am accepting it as portable on the assumption that it will only be run occasionally during troubleshooting.
Stealth: ? No

How to extract: Download a2HiJackFree.exe to a folder of your choice and launch.

a2hijackfree v31016 seems to corrupt system.ini and win.ini when checking Autoruns. I was forced to scanreg /restore to get Win 98 up & running again.

download link broken, there is a far more recent version available, untested

Unfortunately doesn't run on Win7 x64. I get this error Run-time error '5': Invalid procedure call or argument

Peter202 on 2013-08-11 14:38
