Startup Control Panel

By Mike Lin Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

This tiny start-up manager lacks compelling features, but at least it works fine and costs nothing. Simply put, this program allows you to disable which programs run when you boot up your PC. The tabbed interface offers sections for applications and Registry keys that launch on start-up, but since the program offers little information on the applications, it's not useful for identifying spyware or other potentially harmful programs. Nor will you find an uninstaller, a feature that's common in utilities of this ilk. All things considered, Startup Control Panel only will suit cash-strapped users with very simple needs.
