Mange Start Tasks Smartly With Startup Master And Make Windows Load Fast

A common headache that many users face with their PC is that their Windows doesn’t load as fast as it used to be earlier. This is because, when Windows load, a bunch of programs demands system resources simultaneously. But, by queuing (delaying) applications that loads at Windows startup can reduce the time taken for Windows to load. Here is how it is.

 The benefit of setting a program to start alongside Windows is that it will be instantly available when you need it. The downside is that, if you have too many applications launching at startup, it will take ages before your system to be ready to use. By managing the start tasks smartly with a free application called Startup Master, you will actually notice a difference.

 Startup Master is a free Windows startup manager and optimizer that help you take control of applications, which run on system startup, allowing you to prevent unnecessary programs from running on Windows startup.

After installation, run Startup Master. It’ll displays a list of all of the programs that loads when your PC boot and lets you disable, delete or delay the launch of each one. Just right click and select your option.

The most useful feature of Startup Master is delaying (queuing) a startup program. You can configure the waiting time and priority of each tool under Settings. Just select an item that you want to delay and click ‘Settings’ to adjust the time and priority.

To get information about it, including its version, and whether it can be trusted, etc, just click an item. If you suspect an item, you can search on the Internet to get to know about it. Right click and select ‘Search internet’ option.

Note that, you should not delay or disable programs like Antivirus and Firewall from startup. Also, don’t forget to disable the toolbar option while installing Startup Master.

Startup Master Supports Windows XP, Vista and 7 (32-bit and 64-bit) and you can download it free at developer’s site here (It requires Microsoft .Net Framework 4).
