    StartEd (A program to manage slow computer startups)

    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!

    does this program inundate you with popups/ads incessant appeals to upgrade to the paid/pro version like so many "free" antivirus ones?

    Not that I remember.
    I'm guessing that you are talking about the free version?

    I have been using the pro version for a couple of years now but I don't remember the free version being intrusive.

    You could always uninstall it if you wanted to.

    Okay ... Just to satisfy my curiosity, I went and downloaded the free version, again.
    No popups!
