Startup Entries

Note: It is recommended that any change in startup entries be made by an advanced user. Windows starts several processes during startup that are essential for the smooth running of the computer, and any change in them may result in instability of the system.

Click on the "Startup Entries" tab of the Options window to view a list of all the programs that are started at Windows startup, as well as the paths to the executables of these programs. Max Registry Cleaner allows you to disable (and enable) items in the list, as well as delete them, change them or insert new items. On Windows 95, 98 and Window ME systems, the user has full access to this list. On Windows NT / 2000 / XP systems, the list will display the global and the current user entries. For some functions like viewing all entries or even changing some, you may need admin or power user rights.

If you want to change any entry, select that item and click on Change. A box will appear that will allow you to change the value of the path to the executable of that program.

If you want to insert any new item in the startup list, i.e., add a program to the list so that it starts up with Windows, click on Insert.

A window will appear in which you need to specify the following values to create a new Startup item:

  • Root Key - You can choose to create this startup item either for the current user only or for all users. If the former, this program will be started up only when the current user logs in. If the latter, this program will be started up for all users who log into this system.
  • Key - This specifies whether the program to be started up is a normal program or a service program.
  • Name - The name of the program to be started up.
  • Link of the item you want to insert - The path to the program executable.

When you restart your PC, that item will start at Windows startup. If you want to delete some item from startup list, select that item and click on Delete. The next time you start your PC; this program will not start up along with Windows. Always use the Delete option with caution.

You can also export the startup items list to any place in a text file format by clicking on Export. Follow the prompts to specify the name of the text file that the information will be saved in as well as its location.
