Good call on the autoruns and process explorer...i always forget about that app for some reason. Miss the old sysinternals apps. Ill have to tinker with winpatrol. Seems like a pretty cool app. I really like startup lite for the simple fact i can tell someone about it, have then download and run without thr fear of bluescreening there system. Oh the simplicity.... Thanks for the suggestions peeps!.
So i just found out that startup lite is no longer in development...i guess i always took it for granted. I was told it will probably work on windows 7, but wont remove some unneeded stuff. So, anyone got any suggestions for a startup lite alternative, particularly one that works on vista and win7? Thanks for reading.
