Autoruns is another great tool - http://www.microsoft...lities/autoruns.mspx

If you're looking for a tool to manage the order in which your startup applications run, I recommend StartRight - http://www.joejoesoft.com/vcms/113/

Yes, startupCPL is a great product. I recommend it as well. www.mlin.net

It installs itself as a control panel applet, is freeware, and does what all the major competitors do in, to me, an easier interface.

Chameleon Startup Manager is the best I have found. It has features none of the others do. It is on special here on DC for 40% off until the end of the month. I bought it full price and it was well worth the cost. Also, Evgeni, the developer is a really nice guy and is very responsive to issues (problems and requests).

Lets not forget <A href="http://www.r2.com.au...&show=startdelay" target=_blank>startup delayer</A> I was introduced to it on this site and I have found it very easy and effective.

Welcome chinablue32uk!  :)

Starter is the best for me. The biggest feature is that you can add new programs to start by choosing from running processes. Very easy to use and tons of features and FREE!!!

Use this in unison with Startup Guard (also FREE!!!) and there's really no reason to look elsewhere (for me anyway :) )

great suggestions, Nighted!

Mike Lin has made a similar app to StartupGuard, StartupMonitor: http://www.mlin.net/StartupMonitor.shtml
I haven't tried it, but I've no doubt it's great, having used other pieces of mlin software.

My personal favorite unique feature is the ability to save startup configurations. Then, you just load which ever configuration you want, apply it, and your set.

I might have to give Chameleon a look-see. I'm attracted to what I perceive to be a "set it and forget it approach" and enough people here have raved about it that it must be GREAT! I used to use Mike Lin's Start Up Control Panel and then moved to WinPatrol Pro (the free version is very good as well). In its latest incarnation it features a delayed start feature with more functionality planned for this feature in upcoming releases. WinPatrol's developer is very approachable as well and is very open to feature requests, suggestions, and criticisms. WinPatrol Pro comes with a lifetime license, which is becoming increasingly rare these days.

Another good tool that includes a very easy to use (though not as feature rich) startup manager is The Ultimate Troubleshooter.

Hmm... I hit post and walked away - probably an hour ago - and this didn't get posted because while I was typing (and subsequently away) Nighted, Ken and TucknDar posted their missives as well. Well! Good thing is that it gives me an opportunity to welcome chinablue32uk to the board as well!
