StartEd (A program to manage slow computer startups)
« on: May 10, 2019, 02:46:48 PM »

A couple of years ago my fairly new computer started to take forever to boot.
Actually, boot time was okay, the problem was getting to the desktop and then waiting up to five minutes for the desktop to fully load to be able to launch anything!

Looking for information on what I could do to speed everything up again I tried various suggestions like: Task Manager, WinPatrol, SysInternals etc. etc.

Some like Sysinternals would list all of the startups but I was in the dark on which programs were absolutely A MUST for computer functioning!

That is when I stumbled upon a program that not only listed every startup program but also pointed out the essentials, obsoletes, new, trojans, services etc. etc.

I was so impressed with the free lite version that I purchased the Pro version!

My question is .. Why in the world hasn't this app been recommended by more folks, to others who have startup problems?

The link that I have included goes to their home page where you can download the free version (or pro).

If any of you would like to try it out ... I'd appreciate your opinions.

I promise, there is no malware at the site or in the app itself!   :blush:

Thanks. I literally just timed my dads computer two days ago and it took 20 minutes to restart.

Hit Control Alt Delete, then select Task Manager to see what's running.
You can go to registry editor to stop whatever you like, just be careful not to disrupt actual Window programs in the process.

All of my anti viruses, malware apps, keylogger blockers etc. etc are up to date and paid for.

I pre-scan all apps and programs 'before' I download them.

Plus, I've been using StarEd for a few years now, free and pro.

I just wanted to see feedback from other folks on the program.

Why?  If it work for you and your happy with it then be happy with it.
