When you turn on your computer certain applications, drivers, and services are automatically started at the beginning of each Windows session. The information that tells Windows to automatically start these items can be located in a number of places, ranging from a program group on your Start Menu, to certain initialization files that are executed when Windows starts, to one of many places in the system registry. The StartUp manager tool lets you centrally manage all of these items using one single interface. Using the StartUp manager you can easily add, remove, edit, disable, and enable any and all of these "startup items" in order to keep your system's boot-up process as fast and efficient as possible.

How do I find out if a program that starts automatically is necessary?

When you select a startup entry in the list, StartUp Manager displays detailed information on the program in the Details box at the bottom of the window. You can easily determine whether or not you wish to have the program started on the basis of the Product name and Company. If you have never heard of the company or the product, then the entry is probably not needed.You can also find it's more information from internet ,to do this,right click your mouse and select 'Search Google' on the popup menu.

Deactivating and deleting entries

Unmark the check box in front of an entry to disable it, and the program will no longer be started the next time you start Windows. In this way, you can find out for certain whether the entry is needed. If something doesn't work properly the next time you start Windows, all you have to do is select the check box again.

If you are certain that you no longer need an entry, you can remove it from the list entirely by clicking 'Delete this entry'.

Adding a new startup entry

If you wish to add a program to one of the startup folders yourself, click 'Add program...'.

Enter the name of the desired application in the dialog and enter the directory path of the program file in the Path/Command Line box. You can use the Find button to help you find the file.

You may also edit any of the existing listed items in order to move them from one location to another, change their program description, or update the command line that is being used to start the item.
