Hi guys.

Can someone tell me if there is a utility that would accept as input, the report generated by autoruns and compare each entry to the startup database and flag any of the autoruns entries that are marked as X in the startup database? I think that would be a good utility.

For example, just casually reviewing the autoruns report on my machine, I encounter the program alcxmntr.exe which is flagged with an X in the startup database. I suspect there are others but there are a bunch of programs starting up on my machine and is time-consuming to check each one individually. Would be nice if I could automatically search the database in a single operation and generate one report of all the flagged programs.

Thanks,

Jack

Edit: added alcxmntr comment

No there isn't a tool. We have thought of this in the past but found there would be way too many false positives for us to be comfortable with.
