Yeah I hate it when you have to search and search for some of these programs and how they start. This one was not that a big deal just that I was intrested to know how they had changed it to do it this way

I once had to track down a java appelet that was consuming 97% CPU at startup. Autoruns found it in one of the 50+ places that it could have been starting from and fixed it so it never happened again. I am confident that I never would have found that little bugger's launch location without Autoruns.

I don't like to leave home without a copy of Autoruns on my USB flash drive either.

Autoruns is simply indispensable especially when your out working on someone else's computer.

Thats why I have the full Sysinternal Suite on my "Emergency stick". That's 66 gems which only take up 12.46MB
(27.8MB unpacked) which in my experience, come in very handy in a lot of situations.

Mark Russinovich is a true genius who understands the inner workings of Windows computers like few others do. His Sysinternals Suite has an amazing array of very useful programs I just wish that they were all Win 7 compatible.
