StartupStar is able to help you organize apps that are scheduled to run when your system starts. It is able to remove them from the startup list or disable them from running altogether. The app also allows you to click the status icon, so you can easily delete the entry, block it or set it as a ‘delayed start’ app.
StartupStar analyzes your PC and shows you apps that are automatically launched during startup. It also displays a rating for those apps, showing you which of them are valuable and which may be removed.
Key Features include:
- Full control: The main screen shows you an overview of all startup entries. From here you can enable, disable, or delete them.
- Delay entries: StartupStar allows you to delay the start of apps. This reduces the number of simultaneous apps that try to launch on system start.
- Creation of new entries: StartupStar allows you to instantly create new startup entries. It also supports Administrator rights without UAC (User Access Control).
- High security through backups: If you accidentally delete an entry, you can easily restore it.
In addition to being highly configurable, the app also comes with a firewall component that detects new items that might be added to the startup list, and will notify you about them. It can also block items that have been added to the blacklist. With the firewall function enabled, you can set the app to minimize itself to the system tray. It will then be able to notify you without interfering with any active processes.
Overall, StartupStar is a good startup manager that integrates a useful firewall component. It is able to help you manage apps, which are are scheduled to run at system start, at the same time, being able to notify you about any modification attempts. The interface is user friendly and it comes with intuitive controls that also add to the overall simplicity without sacrificing efficiency.
