"Good at what it does. Never found anything better."
Helps prevent startup bog-down. Priced right (free) but that isn't as clear as it used to be when you go to download & install it. May be about to go shareware. Grab a copy now if you think you may want to try it.
Programs may not stay under SD control after reboot/updates & may then start twice. Controlled programs have cryptic default names. SD can mod nm w/descriptor but this is work. Programs needing administrator right may not start (Vista UAC issues).
If you feel you need the benefits of fine-tuning which programs start & when, this program will help you. You may wish to grab a copy now & save it as it appears the company may be preparing to make the program a time-limited shareware teaser.
Using the program requires vigilant maintenance to keep it doing what you want it to do. While I find the program useful, I would not recommend it to noobs who are not ready to take the time to learn & maintain the program. The program isn't hard to use but there is a learning curve.
