A new version of Autoruns Portable has been released. Autoruns is an autorun configuration utility that allows you to adjust the auto-starting programs, toolbars and browser helper objects on the local PC. It's packaged in Format so it can easily integrate with the Platform. Autoruns is freeware for business and personal use.

Update automatically or install from the portable app store in the Platform.


Screenshot From the publisher: "This utility, which has the most comprehensive knowledge of auto-starting locations of any startup monitor, shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and shows you the entries in the order Windows processes them. These programs include ones 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 much more."

Nice, this one has worked!
The 14.02, even if I ran it as SYSTEM (psexec), I always received an error message. My Workaround: right click on item -> JUMP to Entry|Image (REGEDIT or PATH), then delete the entry|lnk - manually!

When this happens, it just means that a new version was released. It errors because we verify each given version before release and the publisher uses the same download. You just need to report it in the Outdated Apps thread linked from the Support or Development pages. 14.05 was just posted.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

i would only know to report outdated apps only if i HAD known the issue was "a NEW version released"! Lacking this (& me only layman knowledge & not backend knowledge), I was baffled!

SO would this be expected behavior for any PA.c app (so hopefully I'll remember ur schooling me on this point)?????

THANKS for v14.05!!
