Each computer user should pay attention to the processes that are loaded on Windows startup because of two main reasons. The first reason is that the big amount of such processes enlarges duration of startup and if there are too many processes that you actually don’t need then it’s just a time wasting. The second reason is that any type of harmful applications, like spyware or adware, can hide among safe processes. Disable Startup is a small and absolutely free application for managing your startup processes. Using this software you can easily enable or disable the processes that are loaded on Windows boot. It can also run in your system tray and prevent all changes of startup. It means that unwanted applications can’t add themselves into startup without your knowledge. The program has a great settings section that allows you fully customize its performance according to your will. Unfortunately developers of this software didn’t provide it with a user guide, but you can get some information about it on their home page. Disable Startup supports both Windows XP and the newest Windows Vista.
