I've been using this for about a week.
No issues so far. Helps a lot if you tend to install new software and have too many start-up entries.
I'm a long-time Autoruns user as well and that will be the case going forward.
This utility just makes it more basic than Autoruns, especially if you don't have much experience with choosing/using/setting start-up entries.
I've mainly used it to disable non required registry start ups and programs.
It allows you to delay apps when you start/logon Windows as well, which I also use.

Any file backup pgm's?
Not sure if it has been mentioned, Karen's Replicator. Downside is it doesn't compress or archive, just replicates files to a destination - contains a nice scheduler for automation.

Easy to use interface, you can create numerous jobs easily - set and forget.

Options include:

  • Repeated copies at intervals as short as a few minutes, or as long as several months
  • Copying only the files that have changed
  • Removing folders and files from the destination if they have been deleted from the source
  • Ability to exclude files, specifying which files should not be copied
  • Ability to exclude days, specifying which days a job should be skipped

I seem to recall this one from years ago - thanks will give it a shot:thumbsup: don't really need the compression just copy, add & overwrite will suffice.
