Start-Q: Change Windows Startup Programs Load Order

We all know that Windows allow users to add/remove startup programs quickly, but what if you want to change the startup order?

If you are looking to speed up your Windows login then changing the startup programs order is important. There are many applications that load during startup and most are not even needed at that time. Windows will load them all(gives equal priority to all), therefore reducing the startup time and eating maximum memory.

Start-Q(Start Quick) plans to change all that by helping user select which programs to launch first and which one later. It allows users to assign higher priority to some programs and lower priority to others. Therefore in other words, it speeds up your Windows login and startup.

When you run the tool under Administrator account, it will ask if you want to change the startup order for your account only or for all accounts.


Start-Q startup programs

You can add the programs in queue so that each program is loaded turn by turn. It doesn’t help users who have already cleaned many of their startup entries, but will surly help those with lower or medium-end computers filled with multiple startup programs.

Update: We have removed the download link because according to some users, it has Trojan virus. We handle such situations very strictly. For alternatives, please check out Oolauncher, LaunchMeNot, and Security AutoRun.

It works with Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. Enjoy!


  1. I attempted to use this program (Start-Q) but it failed to cause my program load order to change. It also failed to load 2 of the programs I inserted near the top of the list. After uninstalling Start-Q my system was not restored to the state it was before running Start-Q. My system is Windows 7, and I installed and ran Start-Q as the Administrator. So use this with caution, it may not work for you as you had hoped.
