Anyone Familiar With StartEd?
« on: July 12, 2018, 07:36:27 PM »
Has anyone had experience using this software?

I like how it uses different colors as indicators as to whether a running program can be safely disabled, safely allowed to run or even if the program is necessary or obsolete!

Yes, I know about Sysinternal's Autoruns but it doesn't make recommendations like StartEd.

There is the free StartEd Lite but I'm leaning on purchasing the Pro version ... "If" I can get some favorable reviews.
(The Pro version also finds trojans)

Full feature list

    View, Edit, Delete, Disable and Add entries to your Windows startup configuration
    Detect obsolete startup items and unneeded memory hogs
    Backup and Restore your startup configurations
    Manage System Services with detailed notes and description
    Filter Service List with keywords
    See new startup items and services since last StartEd use
    Uninstall Applications
    Show detailed information about every startup entry
    Launch programs
    Create shortcuts on desktop (useful for temporary disabled items)
    Print out and copy startup list to clipboard
    Recognize Trojan Horses in startup configuration

Exactly! I took the time to learn exactly what every little thing running in my pooter was by searching. (Days of work)
Since I never really install new shit, I can spot an intruder immediately, find it's source and kill it.

This program would have saved me hours/days reading up on every prog running. I think I have mine down to around twenty essentials and nothing more.
But I also have a lot of crap I have to keep alive, including about 20 open browsers, my game of course and Gods knows, spell check is the air we breathe. :biggrin:

I have used the free/lite version for a while but there are literally hundreds of processes running on my pc!

This software doesn't just show you what is running at startup ... It shows Everything that is currently running.

Task Manager doesn't show Half of the running processes that this software shows.

Be careful with these So-Called "Free" Apps, they are not your friend, they are selling your private info, they all do.
