In this episode of Defrag Tools, Andrew Richards, Chad Beeder and Larry Larsen talk about a Sysinternals Autoruns file from a viewer (Judy) for a slow booting system. We update Sysinternals and in doing so, we use Sysinternals Steams to show the (NTFS) alternate data stream used to save the Zone information of the download.
