Starter is an advanced startup manager for 9x, Me, NT, 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista.

Starter is a real Freeware and is not crippled in any way among the similar products. The user interface is pretty simple and has a lot of options that are self-explanatory.

As a primary purpose, Starter allows one to view and manage all the programs that are starting automatically whenever operating system is loading. It enumerates all the hidden registry entries, startup folders' items and some of the initialization files, so that the user could choose to temporarily disable selected entries, edit them, create new, or delete them permanently.

Secondary purpose is to list all the running processes with possibility to view extended process' information (such as used DLLs, memory usage, thread count, priorities etc.), and to terminate selected process (even a Windows NT service, having enough access rights).

Starter supports the most common operations over the programs that are executed by Windows whenever it is starting up.

These include but not limited to:
· add new items,
· delete and edit existing items,
· temporarily disable and enable items.
In addition, Starter allows to manage the currently running processes in system.
