 |  Version: AutoRuns 9.56

Summary

Does exactly as it's name implies ... finds everything that "AutoRuns" on your pc, be it from that start menu or the registry.

"A good program that does just what it says it will do."

November 28, 2009  |  By ncsamish

 |  Version: AutoRuns 9.56

Pros

If you want to know why your computer is slow, run AutoRuns - you may be surprised at the dozens of programs it runs automatically. There are lots of options for breaking this down.

Cons

It may tell you more information than you know what to do with! But that's not a complaint.

Summary

Use this program frequently to keep on top of what your computer is doing. Use it to get rid of stuff you don't need and speed things up. Recommended.

"Auto runs does what it says"

November 04, 2009  |  By gharing

 |  Version: AutoRuns 9.56

Pros

It shows all the auto runs I have going. I can turn off all I want off saving system resources and boot tme

Cons

Hard to know about many running processes if they can safely be turned off.

Summary

Nice simple too. I like it but need more information to turn off more processes that are not needed

"I have both likes and dislikes"

October 29, 2009  |  By ronvit

 |  Version: AutoRuns 9.56

Pros

Helps find necessary upgraded software

Cons

Attention must be give to what you upgrade or else you may be buying something you did not want to upgrade to

Summary

I think it is helpful, but can be misleading at first, until you filter through all the "necessary upgrades" to find the ones you really need or want. I feel that it is used as an avenue to sell something to the customer that they may not want or need but feel that if they do not upgrade their software problems could occur on their computer.

"Good program."

October 29, 2009  |  By WeckGA

 |  Version: AutoRuns 9.56

Pros

Informative.

Cons

Can not stop recoccuring results that I do not want to see. Example, programs that need upgrading, not a newer driver.
Some of us do not want to (or can not afford) to upgrade all programs.

Summary

Show the difference between a driver upgrade verses a program upgrade. Let us be able to stop show a certain recommendation.

October 27, 2009  |  By gurnx

 |  Version: AutoRuns 9.56

Pros

All the utilities from Systernals are useful.

Cons

Helps to be a 'power windows user'. Definitely helps to read the support docs.

Summary

The entire suite of utils is available in a single download:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb842062.aspx

Highly recommended for the 'power user, SysAdmin and support personnel.
