If your Windows PC boots up very slow, it may be due to the fact, that there are several unwanted items that are scheduled to automatically startup with Windows.
Most of the software that automatically run on startup are not actually added by users themselves, many software installations do that automatically.
In the past we have told you about some really good startup managers for Windows, WhatInStartup is another Freeware tool that displays the list of all applications that are loaded automatically when Windows starts up. For each application, the following information is displayed: Startup Type (Registry/Startup Folder), Command-Line String, Product Name, File Version, Company Name, Location in the Registry or file system, and more.
It allows you to easily disable or delete unwanted programs that runs in your Windows startup. You can use it on your currently running instance of Windows, as well as you can use it on external instance of Windows in another drive.
WhatInStartup also supports a special "Permanent Disabling" feature – If a program that you previously disabled added itself again to the startup list of Windows, WhatInStartup will automatically detect the change and disable it again.
WhatInStartup does not require any installation, so you can easily use it as a portable software.
If you are looking to disable softwares from adding themselves to startup with Windows you can use the free spyware remover.
