JSI Tip 8295. StartUpList freeware reports where everything starts.

StartUpCPL is a MSConfig.exe application for Windows 2000, but StartUpList.exe reports more information than either of them.

Download StartUpList.exe freeware to report where everything starts.

This application, even though it has command line options, requires a key press. It does NOT alter your system.

The command line options are:

   /verbose  - to add additional info on each section
   /complete - to include empty sections and unsuspicious data
   /full     - to include several rarely-important sections
   /force9x  - to include Win9x-only startups even if running on WinNT
   /forcent  - to include WinNT-only startups even if running on Win9x
   /forceall - to include all Win9x and WinNT startups, regardless of platform
   /history  - to list version history only
When I ran StartUpList.exe /forceall from my C:\Util folder, the StartUpList.txt file contained the following (I removed the actual startup data for brevity):
StartupList report, 07/25/2004, 07:18:26
