What are Windows Startup Items in the Registry?

Windows Startup Items in the Registry explained

registry insights windows startup items

When you start your PC, several programs launch automatically. These programs are set up to launch this way through the Windows startup items created in the Windows Registry. However, when a program is removed incorrectly, often your PC will still try to launch it upon startup. That’s because the registry entry remains in your Windows Registry.

Registry Reviver cleans up invalid startup items, to ensure smooth sailing when your PC starts up. Who wants a crash before you even have control of your computer? Not me.
