Editors' Review

As a full-fledged, detailed optimization tool, Anvi Startup Booster gives a large amount of information about programs and services that start with the computer. The program ranks each item according to its "blocking rate," a metric of how much the program or service slows down your startup rate.

Downloading Anvi Startup Booster was extremely easy and the publishers didn't try to push additional add-on software. It is a small program that immediately scans your computer when opened. The scan takes seconds at most and is very comprehensive. The program shows you a list of startup programs and services, along with an explanation of the purpose of each program and service. In addition, it goes 10 steps further by determining which programs, services, system settings, and network settings cause your computer to slow down during startup. It then ranks each according to its ability to block startup. The main tab gives recommendations on which items should be disabled or optimized. This program also has a full restore feature in case you make a mistake. There is no help file, but the product's Web site is informative.

As an excellent utility, Anvi Startup Booster comes in handy, especially for optimizing processes that are normally invisible to the average user. Users should take care to understand what they are disabling by reading the description of the process; but if they do so in error, they can always undo the actions.
