What is Quick Startup?
Quick Startup is an instant solution to slow PC loading. As its name suggests, it is a quick and simple startup manager designed specially to speed up Windows boot by delaying some programs auto-startup after system boot, or removing unnecessary programs that snatch resources to launch themselves at the system boot. Quick Startup works to arrange the auto-start programs and makes enough resources for system boot, speeding up PC loading to the fastest performance.
Slow Windows Boot?
Do you feel your computer sluggish at booting? When you turn on your computer, there are drivers, services and many other applications start at the beginning of Windows boot. The information that tells Windows to automatically start these items can be located in a number of places, ranging from a program group on your Start Menu, to certain initialization files that are executed when Windows starts, to one of many places in the system registry. These auto-start entries occupy computer memory, which relatively reduces the resource for PC loading and noticeably slows down Windows boot.
Some of the auto-start entries are necessary for normal system functioning, while the rest of them are only to burden system boot and can be easily cancelled from the startup list or delayed to start automatically after Windows Startup. This startup manager tool lets you centrally manage all of these auto-start entries using one single interface. You can easily add, remove, edit, disable, and enable any or all of auto-start entries in order to keep your Windows boot as fast and efficient as possible.
