Arrange Startup

CNET Editors' review

Your PC's performance tends to slow down thanks to programs that insist on running during start-up. Arrange Startup gives you control over those programs so that you can pick and choose the programs you want to run, so you can speed up your performance.

The user interface is bright and colorful, but also very easy to navigate. Action options are housed on the left side of the interface. From there, you can opt to open folders, launch software, delete programs from start-up, and add and undo programs. Our start-up program immediately appeared as soon as we launched the program. Programs are broken down into user and system applications. As we clicked on an application, its details, including its name and location on our PC, appeared at the bottom of the window. Using the Action options, we were able to select the programs that we wanted to delete from start-up. Adding new programs to start-up was as simple as browsing and selecting the application. Our PC was noticeably faster when we booted it up at a later time.

Arrange Startup does include a built-in Help menu, but most won't need to use it. It also includes a link that takes you to a Google search featuring other programs that could pose a potential threat to your PC's performance. This freeware tool is great to have on hand to manage your start-up programs, and we highly recommend it.

    "Rogue Security Program"

    March 15, 2010  |   By techeads

    Version: Arrange Startup 3.7

    Pros

    None, I did not install update because of VIPRE warning "A known bad file was blocked from opening"

    Cons

    Durning install 'Arrange Startup' loaded a temp file (is-L622s.tmp) which Sunbelt Software VIPRE issued a notification that it had blocked the update because it is a known bad rogue security program.

    "Not free. Confusing GUI."

    November 19, 2009  |   By Einar--K

    Version: Arrange Startup 3.7

    I was about to write free, but it isn't even though it is listed as free.

    Cons

    Not free. Confusing GUI.

    Summary

    Don't download this software

    "a scam to avoid price comparison before purchase"

    November 7, 2009  |   By IonaCarr

    Version: Arrange Startup 3.7

    Pros

    Easy to download, easy to delete, best do neither unless intending to buy.

    Cons

    Price not revealled before downloading. Its like seeing a car for sale with drive away for free, the only problem being having to buy the car at an unadvertised price before freely driving away. Is is not free to use, only free to download.

    Summary

    Good idea if you want to buy it - but it would be good to know the actual price before wasting time thinking it is free. CNET is not alone in this - everywhere sites say free simply to waste your time. Scans are the worst - you get a scan but must pay to for the corrections or improvements to be made. I wish people like CNET operators would be up-front. At least you could compare prices before downloading.

    "Not free. Requires activation w/useless online services"

    October 27, 2009  |   By bjamnjm

    Version: Arrange Startup 3.7

    Pros

    There are no pros.

    Cons

    Everything

    Summary

    When I opened it the 1st time, I was surprised to be taken to an "activation" screen. Once I entered my name and email address I was further surprised to be redirected to a webpage indicated that I must sign up for an online service to activate Arrange Startup 3.7. These are the kinds of service/s I'd have already been signed up with if I wanted or needed it. On top of that the Arrange Startup 3.7 activation screen couldn't be shut down except by going through Task Manager. I don't know if I got a virus from downloading it but this software is definitely messed up. Either it's been drastically changed since CNET reviewed it or an editor dry labed this one. Or, CNET is on the take. No matter, don't bother downloading this one, it's utterly bunk!

    October 1, 2009  |   By Sierra4b

    Version: Arrange Startup 3.7

    Pros

    Nothing good about it...

    Cons

    Caught a VIRUS (b.exe and msa.exe) upon download.

    Summary

    Caught a VIRUS (b.exe and msa.exe) upon download. Also, product is not free as stated. Requires activation. Don't know what these crappy ass editors were looking at.

    "It's alright but can can be improved"

    July 16, 2009  |   By edcal4121

    Version: Arrange Startup 3.6

    Pros

    Looks nice and does separate all start up programs including the ones running in background.

    Cons

    But I didn't like the way you have to delete something from this interface. Not totally clear on how to disable or delete program.

    Summary

    Just not what I'm looking for. Maybe ok for most people but just did not make me feel comfortable using it.

    "Works fine, but could be improved."

    January 30, 2008  |   By Zane77

    Version: Arrange Startup 3.3

    Pros

    Arrange Startup has a dark blue, light blue, and white interface. It shows all startup programs, that start when windows starts up.

    It's easy to disable startup programs, click the name of the startup program and click delete from startup. To enable a startup program click undo, because it creates a backup of all deleted startup programs.

    When you click a startup program at the bottom of the interface, it shows the program name, location, version, and sometimes other information. And it has a previous and next button to select startup programs. One more thing it has is a Google search to search all startup programs.

    Cons

    The improvement it needs would be to have check boxes next to the startup programs, to disable startup programs by unchecking a box.

    "program sucks"

    June 17, 2007  |   By poppa bear

    Version: Arrange Startup 3.1

    Pros

    it was free to try

    Cons

    after removing start-up programs it would not put them back when told to. Be real careful what you remove, If it were Free it would be OK, but I would not pay for it.
