    "Take Control of Your Startup!"

    February 1, 2006  |   By Elven Eyes

    Version: Startup Control Panel 2.6

    Pros

    This tiny application (which you'll find in Start > Settings > Control Panel > Startup) will help you take control of what programs open at startup. The interface is easy to understand...just click or unclick an item to start it. The names of the items are clear and the path helps identify which program is running it. Be careful: some applications (QuickTime comes to mind) will reset themselves to start at startup EVERY time you run them. You'll have to catch these before you shut down if you don't want them coming up again. This application is installed on ALL my computers!

    Cons

    Try to keep a program from starting up by checking within the program FIRST for something like "Start with Windows." Some programs will reinstall themselves over and over in Startup Control Panel if you don't.

    "Does what it says it will do!"

    January 25, 2006  |   By db4elle

    Version: Startup Control Panel 2.6

    Pros

    Does what it says it will do. I have the same opinion as all the other reviews EXCEPT that there IS an easy way to uninstall it. Visit mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml for uninstall instructions. Basically you delete 1 file. easy as pie.

    Cons

    none, given that I can easily uninstall it.

    "What a wonderful little utility this is!"

    November 8, 2005  |   By Captain Siberia

    Version: Startup Control Panel 2.6

    Pros

    All your startup groups get organized into one easy-to-modify control panel. So good and so sensible, it should come with Windows.

    "Does exactly as it says!"

    September 14, 2005  |   By mpc_ace

    Version: Startup Control Panel 2.6

    Pros

    I have used this product for some time now and it works like a champ. Installs easily and the interface is easy to use. It has never failed me.

    Cons

    None that I can see.

    "Nice for beginners"

    July 26, 2005  |   By csonon

    Version: Startup Control Panel 2.6

    Pros

    Small little program that does what it says. Works well and show you all startup programs. Breaks things down into "location" of startup. Recommend for beginners. For more advanced users, everything can be done without this tool. There are others that do the same and provide other tools as well.

    Cons

    Only con is that locating the program is not easy if you don't know where to look. It is located in the control panel. A shortcut to it would have been nice in the start menu.

    "This product Incredibly does what it says..."

    July 14, 2005  |   By madahda

    Version: Startup Control Panel 2.6

    Pros

    It isn't a resource hogging, need to appear on my taskbar, all up in my programs, obnoxious program. It basically does what it's supposed to do, and it sits in my control panel, incredible. This is a must have.

    "Fast. Smart. Easy. Best of all: Helpfull!"

    July 1, 2005  |   By Outback

    Version: Startup Control Panel 2.6

    Pros

    This is one nice, powerfull little tool. Can't there be more of these straight-foreward, no-nonsens things to make life easier? I especially like the feature that deleted startups stay in the deleted folder, just in case.

    Cons

    The download-page states version 2.6, the utility says 2.8... And it would be wonderfull to have a language-module.
