Spywareinfo.com has revieved Startup Organizer 2.5

You may have noticed your computer becoming slower and slower to start up and slower to operate as time goes by. Even after checking for and removing any viruses and spyware, the computer will become slower than it was right after you brought it home. What causes that? Among other things, the biggest reason for this might be that far too many programs are loading at start up.

We do have programs for use at our message board to help us see what is starting up on a spyware victim`s computer. Unfortunately, some of these programs are not friendly to inexperienced users. Startup Organizer makes it extremely easy to manage the software set up to load when your computer restarts.

Startup Organizer looks like Windows Explorer. All of the locations from which software can load is listed on the left in a directory tree. Click on any location to see what files are loading from that location, whether it be the startup folder or from the registry. Programs that load at start up will be shown on the right as if they were files in a folder.

You can disable programs that you do not want loading at start up. You can add programs which you do want to load at start up. If you install a program and it loads up when other users on the computer log into their account, you can alter it so that it loads only when you log into your account. If you want it to load no matter who logs in, or even if no one logs in, you can do that also. If someone else on your computer has installed a program which they use on their account and it annoys you by loading when you log into your account, you can alter it to load only for that particular user.

If you have a lengthy list of programs loading at start up, they can fight with each other for the CPU and hard drive and slow the entire computer down with each reboot. Startup Organizer lets you set programs to run in whatever order you want so that they are not fighting with one another. You can even make the computer restart with nothing loading at all. That is useful if you are installing system updates and have to reboot often.

Offline Explorer review at PCMag.com

By Cade Metz

Offline Explorer 3.1.1548 ($30 direct) fulfills an old Internet fantasy: You can browse without waiting for pages to download. Key in the URLs of your favorite Web and FTP sites, then tend to other business while this standalone utility downloads each site in the background. Once it`s finished, you can browse at your convenience, online or off. You can also easily edit pages, and a built-in HTTP server lets you share them with others. Please use this feature for good and not evil.

Download.com Review of StartUp Organizer

Download.com Review of StartUp Organizer

Although many utilities allow you to control which programs launch when you start your computer, this one offers far more options for control. For instance, you can stop some applications from launching by using the Ctrl key for an extra-fast start-up. The interface is handy, automatically generating a list of programs that launch during start-up for all users on a certain computer. If you want to move applications among users, you can do so via simple drag-and-drop transfers. StartUp Organizer also helps you fight malicious programs that launch without your permission, checking for common threats such as EXE parameters changed by Trojan horses. The program also can continuously monitor settings and automatically remove start-up items added by other programs. However, the utility consumes a bit too much memory in this mode. In case of problems, the backup feature rolls your PC back to the last acceptable configuration. Average home users could benefit from this program, but it will be especially useful to system administrators.

Author: Michael E. Callahan

You all know I`m a big downloader, so I was particularly impressed with Mass Downloader, by MetaProducts. This cool program makes it easier to download program, either individually or in bunches! If you want, you can schedule downloads for non-peak times when the Internet is less crowded. That means your downloads will go faster and be more efficient.

Mass Downloader is the ability to view the contents of ZIP files before you download them! Excellent! You can even download just certain files from within a ZIP file you find online. To date, I haven`t seen any other program that lets you do that -- very slick! The program has an easy-to-user interface and is great for both new and experienced users. Well worth the download time!
