    Hi

    may i know which tool do you use to disable program that start with w7 64bit?

    i was used to enabled or disable programs with Startup Control Panel

    i tried autorun v11.62 but i think it could mess up windows 7 64

    i would appreciate it a lot

    thanks

    Hi mantra
    CCLeaner [IMO its best to use the slim version].

    If you install it go to > Tools > startup > then chose what you do not what to run and disable it.

    Take Care

    I've never used a third-party utility for this. I just use Msconfig.

    Now that I've got a fast system, I always try to disable that from within the offending program's settings first before trying anything. Otherwise msconfig, CCE Autorun Analyzer, or even regedit if I really dislike it.

    Normal version = Comes with optional Google Chrome installation.
    Slim version = Just CCleaner, with no bundled software.

    It's the best for what I use it for, but it will be different for others. Is it safe? I say absolutely

    I've used Autoruns as well, and have never experienced any problems.

    CCleaner and Autoruns are both excellent software, I honestly think you'll do just fine with either one :thumb:

    I like Anvir Task Manager (free edition is fine) for basic disabling/(re-)enbling of auto-starts, or sometimes I just check the entries in Programs -> Startup folder. The nice thing about Anvir is that it notifies you of new autorun entries that were added since you last ran it, or it alerts you live if it happens to be running when the autorun is added.

    However, Microsoft Autoruns is the most serious tool of this kind.

    I use WinPatrol for this -it's easy to disable a startup, then enable it back when you need to.

    WinPatrol to delay, disable and monitor anything that tries to add to startup.
    Ccleaner for a 2nd opinion. ;)

    If all you need is to enable/disable start up programs, you can use the windows built-in utility. You can access it by typing msconfig in the search bar on the start menu. Then go to startup tab and uncheck programs you do not want started with windows. You do not need a third party utility for this task.

    msconfig. No third party software necessary.
