this version, I don't know how to force autoruns to scan the whole list with virustotal. It only scans 1 entry

Same here, looks like "broken" on this new version 14 🤷‍♂️ Hopefully, another version as 'fix' will be soon released :unsure:

It's always a good idea to keep Autoruns v13 stored on external drive... ;)

I'm still getting entries highlighted in yellow in 14.x which cannot be disabled/deleted whereas they were either absent or highlighted pink and could be disabled/deleted in 13.100. Still running 13.100 for now as developers haven't yet got a 14.x version out which isn't causing issues/is bug-free.

That's a bit harsh. It's not malware and not even a Windows update, but sure I always agree with being a bit vigilant and if the software does crash, simply use the previous version 14.04 instead until next release.

Just tested version 14.05 in my VM. It works just fine, unless one demand the popup message after using the compare option. That part never worked since the first release of version 14 and seems even for me a bit weird that the developer don't been able to fix it, unless it's some intended feature. I haven't seen any info on that part. 🤷‍♂️
