Humm.. could you share some code? I'm not sure how exactly it speeds up my computer.

Its a good "tutorial" program, however it kind of makes the user feel a little teeny tiny bit nervous about whats going to happen to their computer when it says, "I am not responsible to anything that happens to your PC!!" in all caps...A normal computer user that doesnt know alot about computers would just say "oh shit, thats great" and probably not use it lol.

Other than that, it would be cool to actually make another GUI that would just correspond to msconfig but do it for you. We could also integrate some different default schemes for faster computers/slower computers etc.

I use windows vista. Is this safe? I need this answer from someone who knows about the subject.

I don't see how this would make your pc go faster, all it tells you to do is go to msconfig and uncheck stuff in startup..btw the take me to msconfig don't even work here. Use Marco....

I am not responsible to anything that happens to your PC!!" is because some poeple are stuiped and will uncheck there anti-virus then get attacked by virus... And i did put "Warning: Dont uncheck your Anti-virus. Only uncheck things that Start with SOFTWARE\ in the location list." so it not my fault

msconfig works for me...

It makes your pc load faster at statup if you have lots of icons near your clock it take ages to load...

So if u uncheck ones that you dont need it will not load them... So it loads faster...

it takes me 2 mins to load up without unchecking and 30 when there unchecked...

So it made a 1.30min diffrence to me...

You know it's a very bad idea to uncheck every program that runs on boot using msconfig, even if you are an experienced user

did i say everyone...

NO i did not...

i said Dont uncheck your Anti-virus. Only uncheck things that Start with SOFTWARE\ in the location list. and DONT Uncheck things that you dont understand

The new one looks better.... but the 'Virus check' only checks 'PCspeedup.exe'. So it's useless. Also, USE MACROS. It stills gives me that fatal error saying that it can't run the external program! But I can see it's gone way further. I like the startup manager, but I don't dare hitting 'delete'. It'd be more 'trustable' if you used a listview with checkboxes.

-edit-

I can't cancel the viruscheck either.

My msconfig is in E dirve...LEARN TO USE MARCO and stop giving HARD CODED DIRECTORY..plus, i still need my program later so it wouldn't make much of a difference. By the way uncheck anit-virus and start it manually later is even better than unchecking all the softwares...
