Installed Autoruns but can't find it in the Start Menu. Do I have to use the "exe" file every time?

Been using Codestuffstarter.

ccleaner has a built in tool that lets you enable, disable or delete startup entries.

you can simply make a shortcut onto your start-menu if you wish, by right-dragging the exe onto your start-orb, or you can drag it into your 'all programs' menu too.

Yeah, I like CCleaner.
It only really shows the software you had to "tick a box" to enable startup yourself, which is good for anyone who isn't totally up to speed with the workings of windows.
Sadly it's usually the ones that didn't ask you and sneaked in through the backdoor while you weren't looking that you want to stop!!
