Autoruns

Introduction

Sometimes you may need to prevent a component of Acronis software from starting automatically with Windows to troubleshoot a technical issue. It could be:

  • an executable from the Run list
  • a driver
  • a service
  • a shell extension
  • a context menu handler
  • an icon overlay handler
  • other kind of elements that load automatically with Windows

Later you may think of enabling it back, after checking the effect that disabling the item has taken on the issue.
