StartUpStar: Abelssoft eliminates startup irritants! It’s an almost universal problem on Windows PCs—unneeded programs that run on startup, adding extraneous time to the boot process, and then you ask yourself, how can I stop this programs to start with my computer? StartUpStar from Abelssoft has something to say about this. The program presents a list of startup items, and then let’s you decide which ones to keep or remove.

The software works with 64-bit startup programs, includes items from the Windows Task Scheduler and allows the user to specify delayed starts for individual programs. Far too many Windows programs are so bold to think that they’re indispensable, and should be started with every boot, without even asking the user. If nothing is done to prevent it, they’ll load with every Windows startup, whether they’re needed or not.

This is not good. Thanks to these self-flattering startup programs the boot process is further and further protracted. And even after they’re done starting, they continue to hog system memory and resources. The system becomes invariably slower.

StartUpStar, a Windows utility, cuts this dead weight off Windows. It lists every startup program, allowing the user to delete, deactivate, or reactivate individual items.
StartUpStar has many functions: - Compatible with 64-bit programs: Now no startup nuisances can escape the grasp of StartUpStar; both 32- & 64-bit programs can be detected and disabled.
- Supports the Windows Task Scheduler: Since Vista, Windows has utilized the “Task Scheduler”. StartUpStar will now display startup entries found in this scheduler.
- Delay startup items: On Windows Vista and newer operating systems, it’s possible to delay the initialization of startup items. Utilizing this method, the load on the system during startup can be spread out, preventing severe slow-downs.
- Search function: The new Search function can be used to quickly access specific startup items—no need to search through the entire list.
- Evaluate startup items: The program includes an evaluation function, which judges each startup item as useful, useless, or harmful. Any user can perform this evaluation.
The application is compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.
