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.

"Does what it is supposed to do."

March 23, 2013  |  By drjonabmw

 |  Version: Quick Startup 2.9.0.823

Pros

Easy to follow

Cons

Nothing that I am aware of.

Summary

I have installed it on several friends PCs to help them with boot-up issues. It is easy for non-techies to use and understand.

"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.

"Easy to use, does what it's supposed to."

May 29, 2010  |  By ekertin

 |  Version: Quick Startup 2.8.0.718

Pros

It has an easy to use, and understandable interface. Generally speaking, it works well, better than other apps I've tried. Did I mention, it's free.

Cons

I have run across a few programs that end up reassigning themselves to start up activation, "ctfmon.exe" to mention one. I have had the same problem with other start menu apps. Seems like someone could solve this.

Summary

Over all, I really like this program. I've been using this one for a few years now. You can find bigger, more complicated, more intrusive, and costlier apps, but for what this one does, and does well, why bother.

"Doesn´t delay only stops."

May 07, 2010  |  By ivoinperu

 |  Version: Quick Startup 2.8.0.718

Pros

Stops indicated programs from working.

Cons

After 2 attemps finally installed, but it only stopped the indicated programs from working and the delay function simply doesn´t work. Good to kick these programs out of your start-up, but not to delay.

Summary

Doesn´t delay only stops programs from starting.
