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


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


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


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

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
