Publisher's Description:

Remove Startup Programs Buddy - The saying goes “What you don’t know can’t hurt you.”, but where malicious programs and spyware are concerned, what you don’t know might be doing a world of damage to your PC, or worse, your privacy. Thanks to a handy little gift of freeware from Scorpio Software, PC users have a fast and highly effective tool for identifying and removing stealthy malware from their computer systems.

Remove Startup Programs Buddy performs an intensive examination of the startup systems registry, classifying each item into one of three groups, General Startup, Winlogon Startup and Custom Startup Programs. From there, users can evaluate the identity and purpose of each program in the startup routine and select items for removal which may be compromising the security of their system. The focus of this application goes far beyond the scope of typical startup managers and is intended to be a thorough anti-spyware tool. A Microsoft Windows™ 95/98/NT/2000/XP/2003 operating system is required.

I installed this software to remove some spyware getting loaded at startup. But unfortunately it did not work. So i decided to uninstall your program and try for other option.

Program works well. Does exactly what it says it does.

It would be useful to have some kind of link to help figure out exactly what programs and services are running at startup, since most of them are just an exe. file that may or may not tell you exactly what it is.

Well Done, Buddy

I downloaded the Remove Starup Programs Buddy with no worries. After installing the program on a very old PC using Win 2000 it setup and functioned perfectly.

Thank you gang and well done.

You can make it better

Hi there
Thanks for your shareware.
I used the program, it did provide me with a list under different tabs but to decide what should I remove or not was impossible for a layman like me. So what I did was to delete only the ones with a question mark, things from Microsoft ( a lot of them ) were not removed, I have not experienced any significant change in boot speed nor I have noticed any other changes. What i can suggest is that you provide a test to first run before we use your software giving us a reference number and run it again after using your software providing a second reference number to compare the results and evaluating the job done by your program.
I hope you can understand what I mean
Thanks again

Excellant Program. Fixed my problem

Very good program. I had a problem with start ups and this program told me what were necessary, unnecessary and dangerous programs to load. After using it my system was much better at starting.
Throughly recommended

Not a great buddy

Seemed to disappear the day after install.
Far too many 'can't do' responses to attempted removals.

A program that does what it claims to do

A list of programs is provided, and a simple check-mark (and confirmation) is all that is required to remove unwanted programs from the system start-up! Security programs will notify you that there is an attempt to change the registry, which is the reason for the confirmation. This solved a real aggravation at being unable to even find where the system start-up list was located in Windows XP (HE)! Now five programs are only invoked when I WANT them to be used. ;^)

Not enough stuff

The program is not self-documented, and making decisions about what to remove or retain left me with a high level anxiety about continued operation of may machine.

Remove startup programs buddy

Need more explanation

As most people are no computer freaks, it would be great to have more explanations on the different features and on what the program exactly do, what kind of files mean what, and so on...

Great program to use anyway.

Network Administrator

I manage the network for a large church. Most new study materials that come on the market are downloaded and reviewed on several workstations. Remove Startup Programs Buddy has allowed me to control how many back ground programs are running on these machines and therefore stop a lot of the complaining that comes because an individuals machine is not running fast enough.

Remove Startup

The program did not give me any help in deciding which programs to remove from the startup. I was trying to remoce popup windows on startup, but do not know which to remove.
