Introducing TechSpot's Windows Startup List

By on
In order to keep your Windows PC running as smoothly as possible, it's important to know what programs are running at startup, sometimes even without your knowledge. It is not unusual that startup programs have cryptic names and it is not clear whether they are necessary or malicious. The goal of this database is to help you find more information about these programs, and give you a better understanding if it is safe to remove them or not.

Program Classifications in a Nutshell
Program may be necessary Program is not necessary Up to the user Unknown Dangerous. Remove.

Since we are just launching this database, errors and bugs are possible, so please let us know if you come across any kind of problem.

We certainly hope you find this information useful.
