MSConfig Cleanup

By Virtuoza Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Don't let its simple appearance fool you; this application effectively removes unwanted entries from Windows' start-up program list. Unlike Windows' system config, this program not only disables or enables selected entries, it also removes them completely from the list. MS Config Cleanup directly scans your computer and displays entries from the start-up program list. You may not be impressed by this tool's straightforward interface, but it will surely help you remove those pesky unwanted program entries easily and effectively. We find this freeware useful and best suited to advanced users, since novices might remove sensitive items from the system's start-up program list.
