Manage Windows Startup Entries & Get Notifications For New Ones With Startup Patrol

Windows startup management is very important, as the number of startup programs determine how long will it take for your computer to be ready for use after you boot it up. If there are a lot of applications and services scheduled to automatically start each time Windows boots, it is going to take a long time and can be quite annoying, specially when you are in a hurry to get something done. On many occasions, you don’t even need the applications that load at startup and they are there because they were automatically added during the installation of a software. You can edit the Windows Startup entries by either removing them from the Startup folder or by using the System Configuration utility, more commonly known as msconfig. While the native utility only lets you enable or disable entries, third-party applications provide more options. Startup Patrol is a Startup management tool for Windows that allows you to delete items from Windows Startup, as well as create new entries. Moreover, it monitors Windows Startup and whenever a program tries to add an item to it, a notification pops up to inform you about the addition, along with options to Allow, Disable or Delete the startup entry.
