Application Auto-Start Impact

With this pack, gain visibility into devices being impacted by auto-start applications, and discover which applications are most frequently causing issues or slow downs.

Description

When installing new applications, some of them will auto-start at login. This can slow down the device at user-login time and deteriorate the end-user experience.Over time, the number of auto-start applications will very often increase, making the situation worse. This could cause a performance impact by increasing the total boot time.
