    Hi All,

    I personally use Autoruns for controlling my start-up items (plus a lot more), the fact that sysinternals is now officially part of Microsoft is one possible reason that this functionality has been removed from Defender.

    I will admit that the application may be a bit daunting for the less experienced user but I do highly recommend it, (and the rest of the Sysinternals suite)

    Reasoning behind it

    Hi, first post on these forums. Can anyone kindly refer to me the reasoning behind removing this feature from Windows 7? It was pretty useful and the fact that it was readily available was great from a usability standpoint.

    I can understand why it didn't belong in Windows Defender (as previously stated now Windows Defender is strictly an anti-malware feature). However, why remove it from the OS altogether?

    Hello Saposmak, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    You can still find making changes to the startup programs available in msconfig and through the registry.
