Editors' review

Though you won't find an extensive feature set, you will find a few new ways to access shutdown operations and modify your Start menu with this simple freeware application. Brutus creates desktop and Quick Launch icons that let you quickly restart, shut down, log off, and lock your computer. From the Start menu, you can access its main control panel that allows you to determine how Windows will behave during a shutdown process. You also can hide items Start menu items such as Settings, Documents, Help, and Run. Unlike its competitors, you can't use Brutus to schedule or set an alarm to initiate shutdown operations. Though it's limited in scope, any user who wants a simple tool to perform shutdown functions can try this free application.

    "Really Great Shutdown/Restart+Logoff-Accesser"

    December 18, 2009   |   By DarkNetDragon

    Version: Brutus 2006

    Pros

    A really speedy way to have really fast access to-Logoff/Shutdown//Restart-Options
    Not only that, you're able to customize things within your start menu with this program
    of course, it's also able to be done manually, but this program does it too

    Cons

    It doesn't actually speed up your computer's startup as much as you might think it would
    If you customize too many start menu options, you could cause a few startup problems that you'd need to start fixing, but other than that this product's great

    Summary

    Great fast and easy access to your Logoff/Shutdown//Restart-Options
    Recommended for labtops/computers that take a while to get to shutdown options
    This program makes Logoff,Shutdown+RestartIcons for you
    It's a great fast shutdown accessing program
    Just be careful not to put it in your quicklaunch and accidentally click Shutdown,Restart,OrEvenLogoff-byMistake cuz if you do that, you could probably tell you wouldn't want to do that, so, in conclusion, fast access to shutdown/restart+logoff-options, just be careful

    Updated on Dec 19, 2009

    And there's Also An Option that says:
    Try-To Lower-StartupMenu-Delay-
    That looks like a great option to help load up your startup menu faster
