Startup Master Editor's Review

Startup Master is a great little utility, which allows anybody to look at what runs as soon as they log on. Startup programs cause all sorts of problems for users, especially performance issues! I found Startup Master to be a great help, as it lets you easily and simply control and limit these kinds of problems.

After a long installation – lengthened further by .Net Framework 4 installation and a restart – Startup Master opened, displaying a very simple grid containing a list of all the applications that currently start up with my system. The grid contains software names and their current startup status, as well as their file locations, file types and further details more for advanced users.  The toolbar above the grid contains a few tools that any user could use to fully control the startup process.

Using Startup Master is very simple indeed; it allows you to easily and simply add, disable, delete and even delay start up entries. I simply looked down the Name column on the grid for keywords and titles of programs that jumped out at me as unnecessary, clicked it once to highlight, and then clicked disabled. Startup Manager then disabled this program from running at startup. Easy!

Want to delay something from starting straight away? Startup Master makes it just as easy: highlight, and click delay. The exact same process applied to deleting an entry, just click delete instead.

If you have a favourite program that you always open at startup, for example your internet browser, Startup Master will allow you to create an entry, so that your chosen program opens without any interaction from the user. This is just as simple – click ‘add’, designate a name, point to a target application and click OK.

Overall, Startup Master may appear to be a program which is limited or doesn’t do very much, however it is in fact a very useful tool and gives the user a lot of control over the start up process of their own system. Startup Master works very well as a simplified and user friendly alternative to msconfig, and could be used by users with various different levels of technical knowledge. Overall, I’d give Startup Master a 7/10 rating – sometimes, simple is just so much better!
