  1. Guys, I suggested this software here because of its slimness (as noticed by oftentired). At first I thought of it as an isolation of the Startup tab in Msconfig. =)

    I didn't know it had crapware because, as I said before, I downloaded and ran its portable version, which has nothing but the app itself.*

    As for WinPatrol, I purchased it years ago and have used it for a while. It's very good but covers many more areas, so I think it's kind of overkill if you just want to remove startup entries.

    Another option is good old Autoruns. It's also free.


    *Nowadays I follow this rule of mine: if it has a portable version, try it first.

    Since Winpatrol is already installed, how can it be overkill ?

  2. I would not characterize it as "pre-loaded" or as "all kinds". The installation file for the KCcleaner gave me the choice to install one (1) additional piece of software which I did not install.


    This is something to expect when you obtain a free program without paying for it. :note1::note2::note1:

    If you only spotted one additional install than you missed quite a bit. Better check your computer.

    This kind of abusive addition of garbage isn't something that you should have to watch out for. It's a program you simply avoid. :)

    As cain_tree boy mentioned, simply use Winpatrol, no extras just an excellent program.

    Does any one have an answer Posted Image (The product is genuine that's why this doesn't make any sense.)

    Mystery solved:



    Enter the following into the search box:

    slui.exe 3

    (notice the space between exe and 3)



    Select the item found under Apps:

    Since it took quite a few hours and some luck to find this, I thought this might save someone else from getting a headache.
