Arrange Startup

Thursday, October 19th, 2006 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Arrange Startup

Slow performance from you PC can usually be traced back to one of a few things. But it’s caused by too many programs being set up to run at every startup you do, which uses up too many precious resources. Well, as we have discussed here before in the WorldStart newsletters (sluggish system), you can regain your system’s youthful state by simply turning off some of these unnecessary programs from running at every startup. This, in turn, will free up some system resources for what you really need, while creating a noticeable improvement in your system’s reaction time.

For a lot of people, this process is easier said than done and I know when I ask people to perform this procedure, there is usually an air of confusion. Maybe I should say uncertainty rather than confusion and it’s completely understandable. The entries in the startup list are usually cryptic and misleading. Their names leave users unclear as to what they are truly doing and no one wants to just start turning things off without the proper knowledge, because that could cause undesired effects. For example, you could turn off your antivirus program without even knowing it.

Well, hopefully this week’s download will put that issue to bed. The program I’m going to be talking about today is called Arrange Startup and its job is to maintain you startup items and keep it at a desired state.

Arrange Startup takes the “Huh”? out of dealing with your startup items by presenting all the.exe files your system has set to start when you PC boots up. If you’re still unsure of what one of the entries is, don’t worry. Arrange Startup even thought of that by marking each entry as “Required for Startup,” “Not Required” or “Incomplete File Info,” which should make you feel more at ease.

Arrange Startup can really be instrumental in helping your PC get back to the blistering performance it had when you first brought it home from the store. Years of installing programs and updates have chipped away at your PC’s performance enough, so take back what is yours and enjoy the speed your system once had. I also recommend the free download Process Library Quick Access Info Bar. That can help you to decipher not startup items, but running processes. It will help you in explaining if you need certain ones running or not.

Arrange Startup works on Windows NT, 2000 and XP. There is also a complete Help file within the program to help you get the hang of things, as well as, a technical support e-mail address.

Hope you enjoy!
