Startup Delayer

Sometimes, hearing it straight from the horse's mouth is much more beneficial compared to rephrasing and repeating. The topic of this Techbit is one such example. The below mentioned summary of the application "Startup Delayer" is taken from its website directly.

Does it take quite some time till your computer is ready to use after starting it up? Do you find your computer is really unresponsive even though you can already see the Desktop? Do you want more control over what starts on your computer? If so, you would definitely be interested in Startup Delayer that gives you the power to optimize your Startup Process by delaying applications from starting up as soon as you log into your computer.

When Windows loads its startup file, it attempts to load every program in there at the same time. Therefore if you have quite a lot of programs starting when Windows starts, each program will try and grab CPU and Disk time so that it can load. If each program tries to do this at the same time, you will soon notice the slow down that occurs due to your CPU trying to help all the programs to load, and your hard disk accessing multiple files.

Startup Delayer allows you to add some order to this process by determining the best time to launch your Applications. You can choose to do this based on how idle your computer is, or you can set an arbitrary time.
