Editors' Review

+
While this start-up manager offers plenty of features to impress, a less-than-perfect interface and lack of guidance on potential malware keeps it off our top list. Ultimate Startup Manager goes beyond simply listing programs that automatically launch with Windows. It allows you to create several profiles so you can then select which start-up you want through a special menu. For example, if you're looking for a quick, clean launch, you simply select the "Clean System" profile. We were impressed by the program's ability to notify when new programs are added to the start-up list, a good way to keep an eye on malware. Yet while Ultimate Startup Manager detects new files, it doesn't give any hints to whether the software is good or bad. An option to launch without Windows Explorer we thought was an interesting extra feature. While the interface isn't the best designed, it doesn't significantly detract from the program's features. Overall, Ultimate Startup Manager is a good tool for people looking to kick-start a sluggish PC.

"Ultimate Startup Manager 1.1"

May 16, 2012  |  By barrington thompson

 |  Version: Ultimate Startup Manager 1.1

Pros

Create several Profiles and Kid's Protection System, but I haven't tested either of them.

Cons

After first Boot-up, after the initial install, I was left with a black 27" LED's Monitor Display with a 25cm x 18.5 cm display.


Doesn't delay the startup of applications in Misconfiguration to speed-up the PC starting-up.

Few features.

At the moment, I shall continue to use the following three free applications - JetClean 1.2.0, JetBoost 1.1.0 and Advanced SystemCare 5.2.0, which in my opinion are superior (for example enabling, 'Delay Startup Programs' - speedup startup (boot-up)speed.

Summary

What is the purpose in my opinion of wasting money buying an inferior product when some free products are superior for speeding-up a PC.

Test the free copies of; JetClean 1.2.0, JetBoost 1.1.0 and Advanced SystemCare 5.2.0.

Some other free applications, which maybe worth looking at are; Wise Registry Cleaner, Wise Disk Cleaner and Glary Utilities.

U.A.C., I think it is called, enables Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit OEM to notify me each time an application is to be installed on to my PC, which I think Windows XP also did on my old PC.

Some of my PC's specifications are; Processor: Intel i7 2600k, Memory: 16GB RAM, Corsair 120GB SSD (solid state drive), Hard disk drive: 2TB HDD, Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit OEM, Graphics card: Nvidia GTX 570 (overclocked to GTX 580 by graphics firm), Motherboard: P8Z68-V Pro Gen3

Impossible to solve any problems without knowing; what is the problem to be solved, what happened before the problem occurred, what happened after the problem occurred, what software together with its version, because a subsequent version could have solved the problem, and my new computer means that I don't have to worry about speed and disk space any more.

"Sorta kinda almost works - ugly interface - questionable reliability"

September 16, 2007  |  By ChicoThorn

 |  Version: Ultimate Startup Manager 1.1

Pros

It gives you a way to control your startup items unlike any other software I've seen since the old Mac SE days [1987]!

Cons

Lousy interface, obtuse, UGLY, English in software obviously written by someone who doesn't speak English as their native language... it would be funny if I hadn't already paid for a full copy... which, by the way, is NO BETTER than the free sample... can't somebody else develop this type of software that is sleeker and more reliable?

"I was plesently surprised when I found out it works with "Vista".."

August 09, 2007  |  By Chainmail2006

 |  Version: Ultimate Startup Manager 1.1

Pros

I visit a web site called "Best Vista downloads" often because "Vista" is the only operating system I use now and there I can find which software works with "Vista" and which ones work the best. I really wanted a good startup manager that worked with "Vista" and was pleasantly surprised when I found this application there with "The Best Vista Downloads" award given to it. I bought it a year and a half ago and loved how it handled my "XP" startup. I found my paid installer and installed it. Although it didn't make a difference in my computers startup speed it works good and gives me easy access and control over which programs start with my system. I'm surprised that the old reviews on it are gone because it's the same version that was available here a long time ago.

Cons

It doesn't make a difference in my systems startup speed. In fact, if anything, it's a tad slower. But I like the easy access and control it gives me so I find it a valuable application and am willing to wait 30 seconds or so longer to get my system up and fully running.
