    Alternative to msconfig ?

    Hey all, i know i have read around alternatives to msconfig but for the life of me i cant recall the program, or thread i read it in.

    basically i want something to "really" control my start up programs, things like adobe acrobat professioanl put things to start up that do not show up in msconfig so i can not disable them..


    All help appreciated.

    Autoruns is very good (advanced) and lists just about everything that is running.

    I have used -- CodeStuf Starter-- for the past few years. It is a great little utility that lets me manage my start-ups, current processes, and Services. As of today, the most recent version of this program is the 5.6.2.0 which incorperates the new Services menu. Also, you can check out this list --Here-- which will give you some more programs to choose from.

    I've used Startup Control Panel since I first stumbled on it. Basic, but it most definatly gets the job done (and is freaking tiny! great for toting to borked systems )
