Do not process the run once list

Ignores customized run-once lists.

You can create a customized list of additional programs and documents that are started automatically the next time the system starts (but not thereafter). These programs are added to the standard list of programs and services that the system starts.

If you enable this setting, the system ignores the run-once list.

If you disable this setting or do not configure it, the system runs the programs in the run-once list.

This setting appears in the Computer Configuration and User Configuration folders. If both settings are configured, the setting in Computer Configuration takes precedence over the setting in User Configuration.

Note: Customized run-once lists are stored in the registry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce.

Also, see the "Do not process the legacy run list" setting.
