Start My Day

CNET Editors' review

Start My Day is a desktop application that launches your favorite applications simultaneously. This is a useful tool for people who tend to use many different applications, files, and Web pages at the same time. Being able to open this application and starting all of your programs with one click is useful; however, Start My Day has many bugs that need to be fixed.

The app is supposed to work with an alarm start-up. Under the settings menu, there is an alarm option where you can set the time that Start My Day begins to run. There is also an option to launch Start My Day upon computer start-up. Though the alarm does not work whether the computer is on, the application will launch upon start-up if that option is selected. This does not seem to slow the computer down in any way. Another problem is the curious error message that shows up when Start My Day begins. After the initial message, "publisher cannot be verified," which you can choose not to see again, another message reads: "unhandled exception has occurred in your application." To disregard this message you must click "continue."

Once the program is open, you can start selecting which applications, Web sites, and music you would like to start your day with. To open all of these at once, select "Run all." At first, a message will pop up stating, "cannot start processes," even though they all start shortly after.

Start My Day would be a very practical application if it did not have multiple glitches. Nonetheless, it is still useful when you want to open your favorite stuff all at once without the hassle of searching through your computer.

    "Didn't work and couldn't uninstall"

    October 5, 2011  |   By cb01

    Version: Start My Day 2.0

    Pros

    None. (Or, wel, it looks pretty..)

    Cons

    Does not work (does not automatically open software after boot).
    CAN NOT UNINSTALL!

    Summary

    It didn't work. (win7)
    I had added the Firefox and Thunderbird exe paths to Start my day.
    Got some dll error for Thunderbird (even after reinstalling Thunderbird), and Firefox never loaded.

    Big con: Could not (and still can't) uninstall!

    It's not listed in Revo Uninstaller, it's not in my Program Files, and it's not in User/AppData/ Roaming (which is where it should be according to the Start my Day feedback forum)

    Don't download, it doesn't work and you can't get rid of it.

    If you want to automatically start software, just add it to the Startup folder in Windows.
