My First Blogoversary and Freebies
Posted by cotojo on March 28, 2008
Today I have reached my first Blog Anniversary.
I would like to thank all of my readers, subscribers and supporters for the comments I have received over the past year.
It is a milestone for me and very rewarding too. I have reached the number 1 spot on Google Search for my niche, but more rewarding is the interaction with others, bloggers and non-bloggers alike.
I have built trust and repect with my readers and I have also accessed others blogs/sites to sort minor problems and also used secure remote access to take over others computers in many other countries, which has enabled me to tweak them or troubleshoot them.
All programs that I have listed over the past year I have used myself and thoroughly tested them before posting about them.
Thank you all for your support and I hope to continue bringing you useful information to safeguard your equipment and yourself when surfing.
I have some freebies for you, one is widely available and for the less ‘savvy’ user it can bypass the MSConfig to see what is running on startup.
The second one will allow you to create as many Keywords as you like.
Free Quick Startup Manager and Free Keyword List Builder
Quick Startup lets you centrally manage all of startup entries using one single interface.
Using Quick Startup you can easily add, remove, edit, disable, and enable any and all of startup entries in order to keep your system’s boot-up process as fast and efficient as possible.
When you turn on your computer certain applications, drivers, and services are automatically started at the beginning of each Windows session.
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.
The StartUp manager tool lets you centrally manage all of these items using one single interface. Using the StartUp manager you can easily add, remove, edit, disable, and enable any and all of these “startup items” in order to keep your systems boot-up process as fast and efficient as possible.
How do I find out if a program that starts automatically is necessary?
When you select a startup entry in the list, StartUp Manager displays detailed information on the program in the Details box at the bottom of the window.
You can easily determine whether or not you wish to have the program started on the basis of the Product name and Company.
If you have never heard of the company or the product, then the entry is probably not needed.
You can also find it’s more information from internet ,to do this, right click your mouse and select ‘Search Google’ on the popup menu.
Deactivating and deleting entries
Unmark the check box in front of an entry to disable it, and the program will no longer be started the next time you start Windows.
In this way, you can find out for certain whether the entry is needed.
If something doesn’t work properly the next time you start Windows, all you have to do is select the check box again.
If you are certain that you no longer need an entry, you can remove it from the list entirely by clicking ‘Delete this entry’.
Adding a new startup entry
If you wish to add a program to one of the startup folders yourself, click ‘Add program…’.
Enter the name of the desired application in the dialog and enter the directory path of the program file in the Path/Command Line box. You can use the Find button to help you find the file.
You may also edit any of the existing listed items in order to move them from one location to another, change their program description, or update the command line that is being used to start the item.
