Hi,

Is there a way to change the order of programs that auto start when system loads!

For example, I want to have MalwareBytes and Antivirus starts first before internet connection...or some others programs

MalwareBytes first because I have PRO version...

Hope you understand what I want to do, I searched it over internet, but it is confused

Thx in adv :busy:

Good question - I'd like to know how as well :) I know how to use MSCONFIG to edit startup items, but not how to reorder.

I get a WMI event id 10 error every day at start-up and Microsoft informed me that I was getting this error because one of the drivers was loading out of sequence. They told me that this was safe to ignore and would cause me no problems. It hasn't caused me any problem and I've been ignoring it for nearly a year now. If there was a way to change the order in which drivers or apps would load to eliminate this error I would hope that Microsoft would have told me. Maybe there is a way, for the right price of course, but Micro$oft won't give it to me. I wish I could be of more help because if I had an answer I could get rid of my daily Event ID 10 nuisance.

I don't believe you can manage the order with msconfig. I don't know of any other applications that will do this either, perhaps someone else here will.
Please note:  A family emergency occurred on 08/18/2014.  Because of this my time here will be limited until our family member has recovered enough for me to get back to my normal daily routine.  I apologize to those of you who I had been helping, I will try to get back to you as quickly as I can.

I just had a thought. I don't get these thoughts very often as I've learned that 'thinking' hurts the first couple of times. I've noticed that many of my Startup Programs appear in the 'Services' panel. My AVG security is one of them. If you wanted to get creative and try changing some of the 'Properties' from Automatic to Automatic (Delayed Start) you might get the results you're looking for, or at least some of them.

My humble advice is, unless you're adamant about using Windows settings, use WinPatrol. Scotty dog does a great job of managing my startup programs in 7 Ultimate, and it's easy as pie to use.

Doesn't work, it delay some other programs, not MalwareBytes
It just shows at taskbar about a minut later than other programs... <_<

Your security software is starting second in sequence even if you do not see the systray icons until later in the startup process.

From BurrWalnut:

the icons in systray are just the user interfaces. Have a look at the list below and you will see that Services start before programs and your firewall/antivirus starts as services. You can move programs between keys 7 and 11 but don't change any others.

The start order is controlled by registry keys. This is the actual sequence, starting immediately after boot.ini has been read and ending with your program entries in Start > All Programs > Startup.

1.HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\BootExecute
2.Services are started
3.User (some) enters a password to logon to the system
4.HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\UserInit
5.HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell
Programs for ALL USERS keys start next:
6.HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
7.HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
8.HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx
9.HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunEx
Programs in CURRENT USER keys start next:
10.HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
11.HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
12.HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx
13.HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunEx
14.Programs in STARTUP FOLDER(S) are started last of all
