Definitely a quality software.
WinPatrol Plus on Bits Du Jour - Friday 2/13/09 - $14.95 (why not $15
Personally I think a good startup manager is one of the utilities that are worth a small investment over freeware.
WinPatrol has a decent free version.
The three that I like most are:
Startup Organizer - Metaproducts ($25 .. formerly DC discount 02/2008)http://www.metaprodu...tartup_Organizer.htm
Support Forum - Mild activityhttp://www.metaprodu...orums_Post.asp?id=14
Chameleon Startup Manager ($24.95 - 40% DC Discount = $15 ) No forumhttp://www.neosoft-t...-startup-manager.htm
WinPatrol Plus - BillP Studios - no forum, nice blog and FAQhttp://www.winpatrol.com/
In my limited experience:
Startup Organizer is the simplest, is well-organized and easy to understand and is very reliable.
Chameleon has more features. Note some design similarity to SO.
Win Patrol Plus also is feature-rich - perhaps with a wider variety and stronger malware awareness
There are another couple of dozen alternatives and some reasonable freeware, for most uses I recommend having one of the above.
Perhaps a separate thread in the discussion forum focusing mostly on the three. I started with Startup Organizer years ago, so I tend to be sympathetic, yet the other two may have passed it by some.
Look for the thread in the General Discussion Forum. I'll bring this whole post over, more or less.
