Startup Defender 4.5

Startup Defender is a small Windows startup manager program that sits in your Windows tray and constantly monitors in real time the startup locations on your PC to help prevent programs from auto starting up behind your back. If a program tries to write itself into any startup location Startup Defender will pop up a windows and ask if the program is allowed to place itself to start automatically with Windows.

Also you can disable/enable any programs that are currently installed to startup automatically.

Enable users to choose the installation path. This program automatically installs to the root directory (usually C:\) without giving the option to change to another path.

I use an SSD which isn't very large by todays standards (only 240GB). I install all programs such as this to my G drive.

Convert this program to freeware or at least create a dumbed down freeware version. There are 'better' freeware startup managers already available

Improve the amount of information given to each start up program when highlighting it, there is very little information given about any of the start up programs in my list compared to the likes of the freeware version of Anvir Task Manager

Create a useful suite of tools by including Startup Defender with Cleanse Uninstaller, Task Manager (GoGoStop) and the Menu Organizer, adding them to a toolbox rather than selling them separately.

Include the ability to temporarily stop start up items so that you have more control over what programs are running in the background at specific times; e.g. when you are playing games you don't need a lot of background system resources runningng

Adding a one click button that can be configured like Game Booster would enable you to accomplish this

Enable a faster boot-time by being able to start up more than one process, service and program at a time. Using multi-core cpu's, this should be possible; the more cores, the faster they load.

This program automatically installs itself to the computers start up que without asking permission. The developer should allow the user to choose whether to install to the start up.

Include the ability to run Zards Startup Defender from a portable device. This would save on system resources.

Include an automatic shut down of Zards Startup Defender once the start up process has completed.

Once the computer as completed it's start up sequence and all programs are running, it would be a useful attribute if the program could automatically switch off to save on system resources.

incorporate the creation of specific-to-work startup programs in Groups, upon the next restart. StartCop, or somesuch, a long-time utility from PCmagazine had it, and its wonderful for saving resource overhead!
