Editors' Review

+
This application performs quick reboot and shutdown operations, although they already can be performed elsewhere on your computer. The program is nothing more than two easy-to-understand shortcut icons that are displayed on your desktop after installation. SuperFast Shutdown performs an instant restart or shutdown with a click of its corresponding icon, although it doesn't prompt the user to save open files. Install is easy, but it's packaged as a ZIP file with no help or read-me files. Though this freeware offers nothing new, any user will find it useful for quick reboot or shutdown procedures.

"The only way to do it faster is to pull out the plug"

March 08, 2009  |  By Marc1314

 |  Version: SuperFast Shutdown 1

Pros

I was quite surprised at how fast this software actually closed down my winXP. It is honestly only 2 or 3 secs at most.

Cons

there is nothing i dislike about this software

Summary

I like this software because it worked even better than i expected. It also installed very quickly and is very simple to use. I have used it to shut down my PC every time since i installed it and havn't found any bugs, glitches or stability problems at all.

Excellent to avoid Windows interminably long shutdown and restart.

Cons

Does show up as a false positive security risk on AVG.

"Seems OK , does shut down very quickly"

February 29, 2008  |  By bazbean

 |  Version: SuperFast Shutdown 1

Pros

My machine really has a slow shutdown ,it drives me nuts sometimes.I use this when i really want to shut down quickly - not always, but it's useful under some circumstsnces.

Cons

AVG flags it as a potentially harmful programme , mind you AVG does tend to find a lot of things , particularly Trojan Horses that I can never find any info on.

Use with caution , but as a sometimes thing it's useful

"Saves me precious time each time I shut down my PC."

March 20, 2007  |  By bmauvais

 |  Version: SuperFast Shutdown 1

Pros

I'm using a Windows 2000 machine and it takes forever to shut down. With this utility I can shut down my laptop in a fraction of the time it usually takes. I like it so much, I've told all of my co-workers about it.

Cons

Sometime when I close Outlook and immediately hit superfast shut down it doesn't let Outlook complete its process for shutting down. When I fire up my laptop and launch Outlook I get that it was not properly shut down and it needs to run the repair utility. I've never had any issues with Outlook after it completes its repair process and this does not happen every time. The solution is to give Outlook 30 seconds after you close it to completely shutdown and sync with the exchange server.

"Fast But May Be Creating Problems!!!"

October 21, 2006  |  By mdfeser

 |  Version: SuperFast Shutdown 1

Pros

It does shut down fast.

Cons

Computer has problems booting after it is used. Bitdefender sees the program clearly as a virus. I am going to have to uninstall.

"Perfect if you ever need to rapidly shutdown or restart your system."

October 11, 2006  |  By fluffy_red_cloud

 |  Version: SuperFast Shutdown 1

Pros

It's very fast. Just double click the icon and almost instantly, your computer is off. Incredibly usefull, especially if you shouldn't be using the computer.

Cons

I would only recomend using this in emergencies, as it doesn't end active processes, so it must force a shutdown, which isn't something you want to be doing, if you can avoid it.
