Startup Optimizer is a software that enables you to manage applications which automatically run at system startup, in order to increase Windows' speed when it boots.
The interface of the tool is plain and simple. On the left side of the window you can view all programs that run for all users or just the current one.
So, you can view the startup menu, as well as registry entries and services that run on a regular basis or just once.
In the list you can check out the program name, command path, location, rating and memory for each entry. You can also add a new startup program (by setting the program name, command path and location), as well as edit, start and stop one.
But you can also delete all invalid, harmful or disabled entries, search for them on Google and open the program folder. In addition, you can use a backup and restore system (save backups in the FSB format), as well as refresh the list.
The program takes up a low-to-moderate amount of system resources and includes a comprehensive help file. Startup Optimizer didn't freeze, crash or pop up any errors during our tests.
However, the rating system cannot be considered reliable, since all our startup programs were automatically labeled as "unknown". Also, the context menu takes a few seconds to display all items once you open it. Otherwise, we recommend Startup Optimizer to all users.
