    Hi All, I read about this utility in PC Pro magazine:
    http://www.metaproducts.com/mp/mpProducts_Detail.asp?id=9 and wondered whether any of the Wilders members have used it.

    It is payware but has a 30 day trial.

    I have no association with metaproducts whatsoever but the Startup Guard sounds interesting. :)

    Cheers. Pilli

    Pilli,
    Have you had a look at the startup list on Pacman's Portal ? http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_index.htm

    The list of 3rd party startup applications is here

    He has a link to spywareinfoforum.com for "further" startup programs and that mentions both Startup Organiser and Startup Monitor
    See here for page on spywareinfo

    Wouldn't you be covered by one of the other layers monitoring the registry for new suspicious additions to the startup keys and/or directories ?
    eg: MJ Registry Watcher or RegRun

    Yes I probably am very well covered in that respect, it was the scheduling part that first drew my attention and the Startup Guard addition seems like a good idea.

    I will take a look at you links now:)

    Thanks. Pilli

    I would defintiely recommend trialing RegRun as well. It's got more options, but it's not quite as intuitive as this program looks. Still worth a look, however, especially for someone like yourself. :)
