Editors' Review

If you're fed up with the load time of your Windows programs, then StartUp may have the answer. This small application allows you to pick and choose which programs Windows launches at start-up.

StartUp has a very basic interface with only five command buttons to choose from. The uncluttered layout makes it easy to add or edit the application you wish to control. One downside is that you'll need to know the command line for the program you want to launch. If you decide to get rid of your start-up entries, a CleanUp button makes it a one-step process. Three additional buttons allow you to refresh the registry, save the log, or get help. The Help menu contains loads of information should you find yourself stuck, though most users won't have much trouble with this intuitive program. It's unclear how much refreshing the Refresh button does, as we didn't notice any changes when we clicked it.

StartUp is a free application that doesn't require a username or password or any personal information or registration. In fact, starting up StartUp is a snap. Once it's downloaded, you just run the executable and the interface simply appears; there's no installation process to go through. If wait time is a problem for you when loading Windows programs, StartUp has a solution.

"Thank you users"

August 13, 2012  |  By tacs411

 |  Version: StartUp 1.2

Pros

I always pass up the editors review and put more faith into what the users have to say.

Cons

One thing baffles me...Why does cnet have the users reporting 41/2 stars when there are so many Cons and not one Pro?

Summary

Makes you wonder if someone is getting kick backs.

"CNet spoils it"

May 01, 2012  |  By tom.piper

 |  Version: StartUp 1.2

Pros

None; YOU can't have it.

Cons

The fancy new cnet download tool is all you will get. When you run it, it downloads the "installation exe" for you and runs it. But for startup THERE IS NO installation. They don't tell you where it is and Windows search can't find it!

Summary

Don't bother; Bad rating is for Cnet download tool

"stupidly confusing"

February 15, 2012  |  By Max_0verkill

 |  Version: StartUp 1.2

Pros

it does work but does not do what you expect

Cons

interface is backwards and does not explain itself, it only deletes unchecked entries, leaving the checked entries intact
should come with a warning

Summary

i will have to fix all of my startup software now due to this

Found things that other start-up managers missed. Easy to use. No install required, just run the file.
