Many users wanted to remove applications that automatically start on Windows startup to free memory and boost system performance. But not all users know that there is a lot of hidden programs on startup. Some of them, probably, you use just once per month and they are just wasting system resources! Startup Guard allows you review all programs which are started at startup, and choose the only those that you really need.
How it works?
Startup Guard keeps database of startup items, which you have choosen to delete or keep. You should manually review startup records on your computer (5-10 items) and mark them as approved or not. If you're not sure if you need some file or not, Startup Guard will provide you with helpful links. Then, Startup Guard will monitor PC's startup area and apply changes according your preferences. It will also detect and notify you about new records that may appear shortly.
Usual user have 3-5 really important programs which is run on Windows startup. These are system drivers for keyboard, mouse, monitor, e.t.c. However, many other programs add their links to startup to always work in the background, like, for example: update modules. These modules used not very often, may be even once per month, but dramatically decrease system performance (always running in the computer’s memory and checking for updates).
By disabling some good but unwanted programs you can get top PC performance (disabling auto-startup, but not removing program itself). Usually, if you disable startup record of some software they still working fine, not loosing any features. Of cause you can always cancel any change you have made!
Remove viruses and spyware
Viruses and spyware sometimes also add their links to the startup. You can catch them using Startup Guard, but it is recommended for advanced users only.
Made a mistake?
If you have deleted some important file from startup by mistake you can always undo delete. Startup Guard allows you to undo any delete within any period of time!
