Editors' Review

+

Startup Delayer helps users avoid a slow system start by giving them control over programs that automatically load when Windows boots up.

This program provides a simple interface to work with. The screen is dominated by the list of programs your computer opens when starting Windows. Above this list is a short row of icons that allow you to add and remove programs and organize the time they are opened.

Adding a program is as simple as locating it in the file tree and then assigning it a specific time to open after Windows has begun. From there it is listed, along with the others, on the main screen. One interesting addition is spacing all program load times out evenly. This takes a lot of work from the user by simply timing every program to automatically open at staggered intervals.

Startup Delayer has isolated a problem that many computer users suffer from and provides an efficient, simple way to solve it. It's suitable for any user who wants more control over start-up programs.

"works as its intended"

May 28, 2012  |  By crazyaaron1984

 |  Version: Startup Delayer 3.0 build 323

Pros

it lets you add programs to your startup and manage those that the user has already configured to run at startup

Cons

ive used an older version of this program that had crash issues after startup but so far havent happened yet

Summary

it does what it says by letting the user manage your startup programs, though its mainly for delaying your startup programs and doesnt make your computer run faster which most people writing some of the reviews in here have been misinformed. this program is a godsend to those that use it correctly cause if you really want a program to run at startup and cant configure it otherwise then this program lets you do just that!

"As good as Quick Startup, but no better"

June 07, 2011  |  By burinkan

 |  Version: Startup Delayer 3.0 build 304

Pros

Easy to install and use. Allows user to determine sequence in which programs will start.

Cons

Does not recommend which programs should startup first, & which can be delayed/deleted. This is important because in many cases, user doesn't know what a program that came with her computer does or how important it is to the PC's proper functioning.

Summary

Does what it promises to do, but could give recommendations. Recommend that you compare this against Quick Startup, which worked just as well on my PCs.

"Easy to use, but does it list all processes in startup?"

May 06, 2011  |  By burinkan

 |  Version: Startup Delayer 2.5.138

Pros

Easy to understand and use

Cons

It's supposed to list everything that starts up when you boot up, so that you can decide what you want to delay, but I don't think that lists everything.
Should tell which processes take most time to boot up, to help you decide on booting sequence

"fantastic startup is now several times faster"

January 22, 2011  |  By jpboyrox

 |  Version: Startup Delayer 2.5.138

Pros

those who don't have it working haven't configured it, you need to open up 'Configure Startup Delayer' and then select how long you want the startup of each program to be delayed for. Brilliant piece of software, opening 50 programs is a dream now

Cons

None! It's terrific

Summary

superb software, I think people just haven't configured it properly

"Does exactly what it says on the tin"

November 16, 2010  |  By leo_bfg

 |  Version: Startup Delayer 2.5.138

Pros

Delays the startup of background programs by times set by you so you can allow your PC to deal with fewer programs starting at a time.
Moderately straightforward to use if you're a moderately skilled PC user (1-2 years experience).

Cons

You need to know what each startup program does and how it affects your PC, so you need Google each one to work out what programs takes priority.
Needs a lot of tweaking / trial & error to increase the speed of your PC starting up (after logging in).

Summary

If you know what you're doing or moreover what the startup programs do and you don't mind fiddling, this can shave a minute or 2 off your PC's logging in time.

Set this up on a laptop and a desktop both running Windows XP SP3 with no problems.

Can "turn off" / prevent some programs from starting up (like Adobe Speed Launcher).
