Editors' review

Chameleon Startup Manager offers users a chance to monitor and tinker with the programs set to launch at Windows bootup. With easy and advanced versions on offer, Chameleon Startup Manager may be a great choice for practically any user.

A simple interface shows all the programs in the start-up menu and their icons, if applicable. In addition, a bold red X or a blue check mark indicates whether or not an item is currently running. Above this, a list of icons allows users to remove and start programs, as well as adjust the settings of each individual item. Here you can choose to have the program start after a number of cues.

The most interesting icon on the menu is the toggle between the Beginner version and the Expert version. Things are kept simple for the less experienced, while the Expert view allows experienced users to have more control over the programs. This synthesis is an incredibly simple move that makes you wonder why more downloads don't offer something similar.

Chameleon Startup Manager offers users a great amount of choices. Anyone interested in streamlining a computer should get this download, thanks in part to its capability to cater to both beginners and experts.

    Pros

    This amazing program is a complete startup manager indeed; it does what it says and more, just more than what you can imagine.
    It has plenty of customization features; it is so smart and powerful.
    Thanks for the developers and keep up the good work.

    Cons

    Nothing at all.

    "Okay if you understand what you're doing."

    January 24, 2011   |   By kenba1947

    Version: Chameleon Startup Manager Pro 3.4.0.753

    Pros

    Boot time is minimalised.

    Cons

    There is a danger of preventing critical software from running because one is not adivsed, well enough, of any risk one runs when deciding not to run a particular software

    Summary

    Okay: boots a PC more efficiently; but one needs to be careful when blocking software from starting.

    "Excellent program"

    August 01, 2010   |   By strydr

    Version: Chameleon Startup Manager Pro 3.3.0.731

    Pros

    The ease of use and how easy it is to change from the Simple to Advanced
    interface. The ability to set startup programs to delay starting and for how long to delay before starting.

    Cons

    Can be dangerous for newcomers to use because it is so easy to use. The price.

    Summary

    Bottom_line summary is that despite the fact that it costs money and is not freeware this is one app that I feel is worth purchasing. It does what it says it can does it easily. Very nice interface.

    "Have control of the Windows initialization"

    November 15, 2007   |   By nelsoncarvalho

    Version: Chameleon Startup Manager 2.6

    Pros

    This excellent program allows me to define which program they will be initiate with Windows, the order and the time between them. These resources helped me to solve problems in the Windows initialization, because I had the control of the order and the time that each program was called.
