I am a registered SO user for a long time. I recently had to start using controlled startup because I have too many programs loading and some of them dont show their tray icon even though they are running-- due to congestion during startup time (too many programs loading at once).
Controlled startup has helped for this, but there should be 2 additional options, please (for a future SO version):
1) add box to enter time before starting controlled startup-- not just delay between programs. So for example, maybe I want to start my controlled programs 30 seconds after boot, but only place a 2 second delay in between programs. This is currently not possible to do with SO limited options.
2) there should be a way for ctrl.exe or so.exe to check to see if a program tries to re-add it's autostart entry to the "normal" areas, because sometimes you will end up with a duplicate program after you move it to the Controlled startup section, the next time it launches, it tries to "put itself back" in the normal startup area-- this results in a duplicate entry.
thats all for now, thank you for listening!
