I am currently using WinPatrol to prioitise start up programs, but a bit fed up with their constant pestering to pay for plus version. What is Startlite like, is it better/the same?
Should have said StartUplite
I would not use any programmes to stop them startingEither go to start up folder and remove programmes or start>msconfig and untick the programmes you dont want to start
I would agree with madboy33©® about discouraging your existing programs - but there are many programs that register themselves to run at startup without your knowledge. I use Mike Lin's Startup Monitorclick herewhich advises when a program is attaching itself to the startup routine, and gives the opportunity to refuse it. It's surprising how many times a day it happens.
I have used Winpatrol for about 4 years now and in all that time I have not been asked to pay for the Plus Version.So not sure why you are getting pestered by them.
I'm with Sea Urchin on this - been using StartupMonitor too for a few years, it's light, effective & very simple to use. Also available at the PCA download section click here.Rarely get any warnings though, unless I'm in the process of installing something that wants to introduce a new startup item. G
Thank you all for your advice, I will go along with you, just putting Winpatrol on disable and download Startup monitor.
there is a simple function to do this at Tools/Software Explorer
Program blurb says it's transparent, yes it is, I can't get any customisation to show, startup is just as it was before, how do I access preferences in the program,since installation it hasn't done anything.
That's the beauty of it. You will get pop-ups only if any new startup entries are being introduced in your Windows startup area. G
