      Autoruns is a stand alone utility so there is nothing to install. You
      can run it off a USB stick. It's a very useful tool. You might be
      surprised at how many (frequently unnecessary) things are started every
      time you boot your system.

      Thanks, but I try hard not to add more and more things to keep
      things from happening, because I've leaned from the past that
      they sometimes cause more problems than they're worth and just
      that much more to troubleshoot.


      Happy Topics,
