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"

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


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


Makes you wonder if someone is getting kick backs.

"CNet spoils it"

None; YOU can't have it.


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!


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

"stupidly confusing"

 |  Version: StartUp 1.2


it does work but does not do what you expect


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


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

"Quick Simple Interface"

 |  Version: StartUp 1.2


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


There's nothing I don't like about this product. Does exactly what it claims to do.


quick and easy start-up manager. Does the job with minimal effort.
