Software helps PC users take complete control of their computer startup options and protect PCs from malicious software.

For Immediate Release

F-Group Software Releases Absolute Startup 4.1

Absolute Startup is a robust feature-stuffed software application that allows regular and professional PC users gain complete control over their computer startup configuration, including services and dlls. It enhances startup options available and informs a user when a startup configuration has been changed without their knowledge. The program comes with an online database access that determines and deletes/disables malicious and non-essential applications that insert own components into operating system autorun segments and hinder PC performance. The software get rids of all spyware, adware, foistware, viruses, trojans and other types of malicious software.

Unlike competing products, Absolute Startup comes with a user-supported database of over 4000+ applications known to insert their components in registry, startup folders, and win.ini file. Any user can quickly lookup an unknown item to see if it is dangerous or not (and if not, if it is essential or may be deleted without any system interference) or use automatic optimization (all malicious software is deleted, all non-essential applications are disabled). The database is located at http://www.absolutestartup.com/startup/ and is updated weekly. Besides that, Absolute Startup allows users to add, edit, disable and delete programs in startup sections of OS, start/stop startup items with/without parameters and find a source of any record as well as to find that program's folder.

Professional PC users and system administrators are sure to appreciate options like read and write access to other users startup configurations (Windows 2000/XP system administrators only), backup of all startup items to *.reg and *.bat files, built-in changes monitor, HTML export options and managing system services and libraries (loaded during Windows booting).

Absolute Startup 4.1 is distributed electronically over the Internet; the trial version is available at http://www.absolutestartup.com/ for evaluation.

The price of a single copy is 29.95 US Dollars. Absolute Startup Home Edition comes without a database support and is priced at 19.95 US Dollars.
