Why do you need this report? Keep reading below!
We have all heard this complaint before, “My computer is slow, I want a new one!” Or, what about this complaint, “It takes me over 20-minutes to reboot my computer, so I don’t want to reboot it ever!”
Unfortunately, these complaints won’t go away because more and more software publishers keep adding their own updaters and starting them at boot time. Every time new software is installed on a computer, the slower it boots. A small business might be okay with this because it helps them keep up-to-date with the software, but within an enterprise that uses ConfigMgr, there is little need for these extra apps to slow down a computer. Removing additional software at boot time means that a computer boots faster in Windows and this ultimately makes end-users happy.
How do you know what software is set to automatically start/AutoStart within your environment?
Solution: Computer AutoStart Software Details
This month’s free report shows you what software is setup to automatically start at boot time and, more importantly, what method is making the software startup. There are four possibilities: PC Registry, User Registry, the All Users Startup folder or the User’s Startup folder. Now, instead of looking in all four places, you know exactly where to disable the app’s automatic startup.
Enhansoft’s Computer AutoStart Software Details report provides information about each AutoStart product installed on a specific computer and each product’s publisher, version, description, and start-up type details. This report is available in both Power BI and SSRS formats.
In the full version, found in Enhansoft Reporting, this is the final report of the AutoStart Software set.
Would you find it useful to know, at-a-glance, all of the software that automatically starts for each computer in your Configuration Manager environment? Then get the Computer AutoStart Software Details report NOW!
