Track Startup Programs with wmic.exe on Windows 7
How to track and maintain startup programs on Windows 7? I want to keep a record of what startup programs are configured on my computer.
If you want to get a list of all startup applications on your Windows 7 system and save it to a file, you can use the Windows Management Instrumentation Command (wmic.exe) as described in this tutorial:
1. Start a command line window
2. Run the following command.
C:\fyicenter>wmic startup get name,command,location > \fyicenter\startup-programs.txt
3. Open \fyicenter\startup-programs.txt in Notepad. You see a list of startup programs recorded in the file, as shown in the example below:
Command Location Name C:\PROGRA~1\WinZip\FAHCON~1.EXE Common Startup FAH C:\PROGRA~1\WinZip\WZUPDA~1.EXE Common Startup Update Notifier C:\PROGRA~1\WinZip\WZPREL~1.EXE Common Startup WinZip Preloader TpShocks.exe HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\... TpShocks ...
Keep this file startup-programs.txt in a safe place, so that you can compare it at a later time to see if there are any new startup programs are added in your system.
