The number of services and programs that are loaded when your system boots-up can have a significant impact on the operating speed of your system. Certain programs and services must be loaded at start-up because they are essential to the security and smooth operation of your system. Unfortunately, most 3rd party software that you install will automatically add it's own programs and services to this list of start-up items. Quite often these additional services are non-essential and are not required until you actually use the application they belong to. For the rest of the time they just run in the background, unnecessarily consuming system resources.
The Autorun Manager allows you to choose precisely which programs and services are loaded at start-up - helping to improve overall system performance and speed. The interface also allows you to add new start-up items, set the priority of a particular service and to create scheduled tasks which will run every time you start your system. The interface also informs you of each item's malware status (whether or not it is infected), whether or not it is digitally signed and how long it took to load at start. This vital information can help you arrive at an informed decision when choosing start-up items.
