Editors' review

xStarter offers users a chance to customize their computers by automating certain tasks. The program is flexible and option-packed, but less experienced users should definitely spend time with the Help file.

The xStarter interface is on the plain side, but information is neatly organized and it smartly opens with preloaded sample tasks. A list on the left-hand side holds 31 possible tasks ranging from opening a Web browser to searching for files and opening the CD player. On the right side, users are shown what actions and schedules are associated with a selected task. There are an almost overwhelming number of options for each one, but a fantastic Help menu is there to guide you. By going back to the examples, clicking on the function you want and then clicking the Help icon, users are shown step-by-step instructions on how to create it. With a little patience, you'll soon be creating your custom tasks.

While xStarter performs its job perfectly, some may feel overwhelmed learning this program. For users willing to spend some time getting familiar with its operation, though, we highly recommend this effective tool for automating tasks.
