JetStart Launcher
« on: November 20, 2008, 10:23:24 AM »
Just ran across this on one of the places I track.

JetStart has both a freeware and Pro version. Looks like an excellent program to help handle your Start Menu becoming unmanageable.

Anyone have any experience with it?

Be careful, you may not be able to get your start menu back the way it was before you used JetStart. If you don't like it.

I tried one just like this, in fact it looks exactly the same.
Once it changed the start menu it could not be undone.
I manually fixed it, and that took a while.

hi gexecuter,

it looked a lot like this program
http://www.tidystartmenu.com/index.shtml
which i had trouble with
therefore the word of caution

glad this one will uninstall properly
'tidy' does not-
or didn't then when i tried it
it could be improved by now, i don't know

And thanks for your blog.
I subscribe to it and you pick some great programs.

I used to use JetStart a while back, but stopped because it crashed a bit too often; except for that, I liked it pretty well.  That was a while ago, so those problems might be resolved by now.  I don't recall having any problem uninstalling it.
