Editors' reviewOne of the most annoying features of acquiring new software is the tendency of many programs to start up automatically with the computer, whether wanted or not. Particularly with unwanted adware, this can slow down computer work to a crawl. This utility helps identify exactly what's triggered at start-up, and can disable or delete programs that are unwanted. Perhaps most useful, it highlights potentially dangerous entries. In our tests, it spotted all the start-up keys we created by installing adware. The biggest drawback is Startup Select doesn't identify all start-up entries, and so users might have to search online to figure out whether some files can be deleted or not. However, with a simple, no-nonsense interface, the program can be quickly mastered even by rookie computer users. We'd recommend it to anyone seeking more control over their computer.
Startup Select is a startup manager, which allows you to get a faster running PC by letting you identify, enable disable, and remove programs which run automatically at Windows startup. Startup Select contains a built-in database of hundreds of programs and their descriptions. Programs considered being Spyware, Adware, Hijackers, or viruses are highlighted in red and easily identified for removal. It features the ability to disable Windows services and additional program startup locations.
