Do you suspect that you have a virus in in your PC’s startup processes? Is your antivirus application failing to detect this virus? If yes, then you might benefit from using an app called Autorun Angel.

analyze running processes

Autorun Angel is a free to use desktop application for computers running the Windows OS. The application is sized at nearly 1 MB and installs very quickly. The function of this freeware is to scan startup processes and ongoing processes. The detected processes are scanned against an online database of known processes and applications.

The processes that are found in the ‘whitelist’ of known safe applications are removed from the application’s list. Processes that are found to be malware or are not found in the list are kept in the application with their checkboxes marked. You then have the option to submit these processes online for analysis.


Once the analysis is complete, there is no direct feedback provided to you. Perhaps to find out if something is malware, you could Google the undetected processes manually or use an online virus database. This application could be greatly improved by providing its users with a direct feedback method. However, the way it is right now, this application can be used to confirm suspicions of an undetected virus on your computer. However, you will have to go through a bunch of undetected processes before you get to the root of the problem. Hopefully, future versions will offer more robust solutions.

    We did not plan to direct feedback to the user. All files are sent to check anonymously.
    The test can be repeated after a day and see very different results.
