'Autoruns', and 'Inssider'

Dennis Faas's picture


Do you have a bunch of programs trying to launch at the Windows Startup? Does it seem to take Windows forever to boot? In that case, try Autoruns. 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.



inSSIDer is an award-winning free WiFi scanner for Windows Vista and Windows XP. Use it to find wireless networks in your area or to test your signal strength and determine which channel is the best to use for your own network. This program works well with all versions of Windows.
