What's the best Windows Startup Monitoring program

I've been using StartupCop to manage what is started on a machine
Is there another program that works better
Easier to use
Takes care of itself, I'd rather it prevent something from running and be wrong than allow harmful to run and have it cause damage.

Thanks

AutoRuns for Windows v8.71

More locations to search startup by than any other app that I am aware of....

Yes, Autoruns is best. However, it doesn't do any realtime checking of what gets added to the startups. One option there is to run Windows Defender, which is not perfect, but will warn you if any known malware tries to add itself to startups.
