Manager for start up?

  Miros 15:06 18 Nov 2006

I did a complete reinstall and in the process lost a small programme that safely sorted out only the necessary programs at start up. I'm sure it's something I got from this forum but I'm unable to find now can anybody direct me back to it please?

I haven't tried it, but is this the sort of thing you're looking for click here

Thanks it's not the one I was looking for, as I remember it I just downloaded it, installed it, and it took over leading to quicker start ups and shut downs, a great little program I should have taken note of it.
Because it was so efficient running in the back ground I can't even remember what it was called, you know what I mean, set up and forget! Thanks anyway.

Try tune up utilities it has a start up manager in it and many other useful tools click here it has a 30 day free trial, have used it for couple of years with no probs

I have a tune up programme but this one I'm talking about dealt strictly with start up and shut down.
It was able to decide safely just what was needed and what wasn't, and as I remember with no input from me, quite remarkable really.

Or Maybe click here

My biggest current myster - slightly OT - is why I get a completely different set of programs each time a start up. Nothing serious but sometimes my USB phone kicks in and other times it won't!

Thanks that seems to be the nearest to what had before, must say as I remember it the other was so much simpler though your 'start up inspector' was not hard to use.
Meanwhile I settle for ' Start up Inspector' Cheers.
