Zards Startup Defender 3.9

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.

If there is an entry you are not sure what it is then you can Google it to see if it is needed or even harmful and choose if you want it to load it at startup or not. For the annoying programs that try to repeatedly place themselves in the autorun for Windows you can click the auto block so that Startup Defender stops them without you having to bother with them anymore. Also you can now view all processes and services then selectively start/stop each one.

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 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.

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, for example when you are playing high end games you don't need a lot of system resources runni

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

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

Convert this program to freeware. There are 'better' freeware startup managers already available

If I purchased a copy of this program would I get a lifetime licence or just version upgrades? I couldn't find any information about this on your website.

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

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

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.
