    It has issues with Windows 10. It probably still works fine with older versions of Windows.

    Could you please go in to more detail as to what issues it has with Windows 10? Only issue I know of personally is an issue with Macrium Reflect but I haven't seen that for some time now. Thanks in advance.

    Pretty much abandoned. Closest thing to it that I use and completely free is Hibit Startup Monitor. It has real time monitoring of startup locations with alerts.

    This is its website.
    https://www.hibitsoft.ir/StartupManager.html
    I use it myself and like it a lot. It scans new startup entries at VirusTotal and shows you the scan results in its alerts.

    BTW, the portable version is not what I call portable and leaves it's trash behind in the registry and on disk.
