Absolute StartUp manager 2.1 optimizes your autostart along with your PC life.

April, 2003

For Immediate Release

F-Group Software is glad to announce the release of Absolute StartUp 2.1, a multifunctional autostart manager for Windows 95/98/ME/2000/XP with new additional settings for program start.
Along with Windows start we get not only the operating system running, but also our favorite and not so favorite programs: ICQAgent ("Is there a way to get it out of here?"), MSNMessanger ("Is it possible at all?"), WimAmp ("Music is OK, but it is all gone long ago!"), that shareware stuff ("If only there were an option for turning it off.") Even having set up the desired configuration once, time comes for installing new programs. And those new programs declare themselves indispensable, and without even thinking that the user can do without them very well, they add themselves to the autostart process. But which one knows better what and when we need - a program or we?
Absolute StartUp manager was developed especially for controlling all the autostart programs. Once you install Absolute StartUp, you become the master over your computer. Now you are able to control and edit the current configuration, add and remove programs, cancel their start without deleting them altogether.
I hear you say: "Every startup manager can do that", and you would have been right, if only...
  • Absolute StartUp didn't follow the changes in the autostart settings and didn't inform you about them
  • It couldn't view, launch and stop the programs
  • It didn't have a Smart Recycle Bin - a special bin with the deleted programs allowing to restore, delete them completely or clear the bin
  • Absolute StartUp didn't present new options for starting programs:
    • Day-specific program start (at weekends or on weekdays)
    • Program start at a certain time
    • Autostart with a delay
    • Start after another program
    • Start upon establishing Internet connection
  • You couldn't cancel the start of the program at Windows startup by holding down only one key.
Using these features of Absolute StartUp, you can optimize you system in the most appropriate way. You can set various configurations for weekdays and weekends - "at least today I won't see that compiler!" - or for certain days - "once a week we have a meeting and I can't fail to get this document ready for it". You can schedule an ICQ session or a rest after half an hour work in a high-way race. It's easy to switch to a different occupation with only one program launch as the rest of the programs will follow automatically. And yes - do not forget to check the e-mail, once you get on-line anyway!
Absolute StartUp makes it all possible, that's why it is a little bit more than just a powerful startup manager. But that "little bit" will save you much more time and power.
Install Absolute StartUp now and you will see how it helps you to optimize your system along with your PC life.
