Looking for a program to manage which applications are started up when Windows PC starts.
- Free (gratis)
- "Manage" means ability to permanently remove any given set of programs from being autostarted
- Comprehensive. Understands "Startup" folders in various user directories' Start menu, and a FULL gamut of "autostart" places in Registry (I know of at least 4 off the top of my head on XP).
- MUST work on Windows XP
- Ideally, should also work on Windows 8 (don't care about 7 much) - I'm perfectly fine if I need to download 2 separate versions of the same program one for each OS version.
- Strongly preferred: Tell me exactly WHICH of the multiple startup options a given autostarted program originates in, before I disable it.
