Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Though you won't find an extensive feature set, you will find a few new ways to access shutdown operations and modify your Start menu with this simple freeware application. Brutus creates desktop and Quick Launch icons that let you quickly restart, shut down, log off, and lock your computer. From the Start menu, you can access its main control panel that allows you to determine how Windows will behave during a shutdown process. You also can hide items Start menu items such as Settings, Documents, Help, and Run. Unlike its competitors, you can't use Brutus to schedule or set an alarm to initiate shutdown operations. Though it's limited in scope, any user who wants a simple tool to perform shutdown functions can try this free application.
