Editors' review

Quick Startup provides the tools for speeding up a computer by singling out slow-moving startup programs. With a basic setup and impressive results, this program will certainly make a difference.

We were pleased to discover the program's interface was incredibly simple to operate, housing its few commands on a single, intuitive screen. This was a blessing, as the Help file's tutorials were brief and not very useful. Quick Startup listed every program that starts running when we turned our computer on. With each, we were given a simple one-click option for delaying it. The programs were given a simple rating based on how slow they moved and this was our guide for delaying them. Once restarted, we noticed an increase in speed and that the sluggish programs waited a few minutes after startup to begin. The program provided a helpful feature that managed all our scheduled tasks, such as updates and virus scans. We were able to customize this and presumably increase speed ensuring no two ran at the same time. Overall, the program was simple enough for novices to understand, but provided results that all level of user could appreciate.

Quick Startup is a freeware program. With simple controls and immediate results, we highly recommend this program.

    "What happened?"

    June 03, 2012   |   By pr3ssur3

    Version: Quick Startup 2.9.0.823

    Pros

    Seems to work on WinMe.

    Cons

    I tried it on WinMe first, I made the mistake of trying to drag and drop to the delayed box, but that deleted the entries instead of delaying them, Using the delay button worked out better but I didn't really notice muck of a difference in the start up time. Next I installed it on Win2k. That didn't work. The delayed programs did not start at all.

    Summary

    Not sure why this doesn't work on Win2k and I don't want to spend any more time trying to get it working because I don't think I really need to use it.

    "Out of control"

    January 25, 2012   |   By sbje2006

    Version: Quick Startup 2.9.0.823

    Pros

    free to download

    Cons

    It made an unauthorized change to the default search engine, from google to their own brand. That's probably how they make their money. It took me a while to figure out how to reset it.

    Summary

    Don't trust it. Uninstalled.
