TechSpot's Windows Startup Radar update

By on November 27, 2007, 8:17 AM
In order to keep your Windows installation 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 our Windows Startup Radar 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, and learn whether the source of such program is of the dangerous sort.

This latest update brings more than 900 new entries and 90+ updates. Our database is based around Pac's startup database, put on a convenient searchable user-friendly interface.
