Powerful tool that enables you to quickly remove or disable problematic startup applications

Unlike a Mac, Windows seems to have problems going in to sleep mode and staying asleep. The number of times we’ve left our desktops in low power mode, to find they are on and running in full power mode, the next day. The problem is that we really want to avoid having to shut down our computer every evening. Yes, it’s better for the environment, but Windows can take ages to boot and launch our startup applications.

However, things are made much worse if there’s a problematic startup application. This can happen when you’ve installed software on your computer and then attempted to uninstall. When you try and uninstall software from your computer, if the application is still partly open on your computer, some of these remnants will remain in your Registry. Try and boot your machine and you may find that it gets confused, trying to find those uninstalled files, which means it takes far longer to boot as a result.

There is a solution and, unfortunately, it’s not built in to Windows. AutoRuns is an official Microsoft application that enables you to run an analysis on every startup application, process and other file, so you can see where the problematic files remain. You can then quickly disable or remove these files.

What's new in 13.95?

- Adds support for redirected user Shell folders.

Verdict:

Powerful tool that you can use to analyse problematic startup applications and processes. For serious users though.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
