AutoRuns for Windows v8.61

This utility from MSDN goes way beyond the MSConfig utility bundled with Windows. Autoruns is the most comprehensive startup monitor I have seen and shows which programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and the entries in the order Windows processes them, including applications in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other Registry keys. You can configure Autoruns to show other locations, including Explorer shell extensions, toolbars, browser helper objects, Winlogon notifications, auto-start services, and more.

Autorun's Hide Signed Microsoft Entries option lists third-party auto-starting images that have been added to your system, and supports the auto-starting images configured for other system accounts. Also included in the download package is a command-line equivalent, Autorunsc, that outputs in CSV format.
