There are some programs that automatically launch when you start Windows. Some of these programs are essential for the running of your PC smoothly and safely, but others are not so much needed and make the system startup slower. What is more that some of these programs are toolbars and potentially unwanted programs (PUP) that you do not want in your PC. You can use the freeware SterJo Startup Patrol to manage the startup programs and control the startup items being added to your system. It can also prevent programs from adding to the Windows auto-startup programs list.
As soon as you install and launch SterJo Startup Patrol in Windows, it displays the list of all the auto-startup programs. You can disable or remove any of these entries by selecting them and choosing the appropriate actions from the toolbar. You can also add a new startup entry or edit the existing startup entries using this program.
SterJo Startup Patrol keeps a lookout for new startup entries in your system. When some program tries to add a new startup entry in your Windows PC, SterJo Startup Patrol shows a notification regarding the new entry being added. From this notification window, you can choose to allow, disable or delete this newly discovered startup entry. If you don’t want to answer right away, just click on the Allow or Disable button and you can change the state of that item later.
SterJo Startup Patrol helps you to view and manage a list of startup programs. You can choose only important programs and not the ones which are making your computer slow. This way your computer has more resources free and works smoother than before.
