Sysinternals autoruns is a tool for Windows systems that reveals all the programs that are configured to run automatically (thus the name) for a system when it boots up. The program also lists them in their priority/order hierarchy, letting users identify which specific applications are started up automatically first and which last. While the program has a GUI mode, it can be set to run on the command line through the Autorunsc utility.
The program scrapes certain parts of the system to make its discoveries, including the startup folder, the registry, RunOnce, and more. Users who want to target the autorun programs for specific applications and not just the system can do so, however, by adjusting the tool’s settings to check that particular application, e.g. by checking the Windows Explorer extensions or the browser objects. Users can even set the program to ignore Windows programs in its list of autorun applications, so that they can better target third-party add-ons they want to stop from running on startup in order to speed up their systems. The program also allows users to inspect the specific properties of each entry in its list of discovered autorun programs.
