Hello all,

I have installed Autoruns on my computer to monitor and control what programs are running at startup. I have turned off many of the programs not needed at startup that I'm familiar with.

The million dollar question is what programs need to be running at startup for XP Home Edition?

Also, how do I post a screen shot of Autoruns on the forum?

Thanks much!

How To Capture And Edit A Screen Shot - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic43088.html/page__gopid__2493350

The Logon tab of Autoruns...reflects the startup items that should be looked at.

As to what should be running...probably personal opinion. It makes no sense to have nonessential programs running from boot, it makes sense to have your AV, your firewall, java, and any Microsoft Windows items listed on the Logon tab, IMO.

Any other program reflected on the Logon tab...should only be running when initiated from desktop/shortcu or All Programs menu.

I did a second screen shot after scrolling down on Autoruns. This time I left it at 100% size.

Thanks again!
