As a primary purpose, Starter allows one to view and manage all the programs that are starting automatically whenever operating system is loading. It enumerates all the hidden registry entries, startup folders' items and some of the initialization files, so that the user could choose to temporarily disable selected entries, edit them, create new, or delete them permanently.

Secondary purpose is to list all the running processes with possibility to view extended process' information (such as used DLLs, memory usage, thread count, priorities etc.), and to terminate selected process (even a Windows NT service, having enough access rights).

Starter is a real Freeware and is not crippled in any way among the similar products. The user interface is pretty simple and has a lot of options that are self-explanatory.


System requirements
Microsoft Windows 9x, Me, NT, 2000, XP, 2003.
There are no specific requirements except this one: registry operations on a Windows NT based operating system may require special access rights. As a rule, members of "Administrators" and "Power Users" groups are have nothing to worry about.

Microsoft MSConfig compatible
Currently supported is MSConfig utility for Windows 9x. Support for Windows XP's MSConfig is planned for the next versions, sorry.

What's New:

Minor update.
* Name of the 'System' process was blank on Windows 2000. Fixed
* Made Start Menu folder for disabled items hidden
