Startup Delayer v3.0 build 364

Vista / Win10 / Win7 / Win8 / WinXP
Startup Delayer allows you to speed up your computer's startup process by allowing you to set when each program will be started.

When Windows loads it's startup file, it attempts to load every program in there at the same time. Therefore if you have quite a lot of programs starting when Windows starts, each program will try and grab CPU time so that it can load. If each program tries to do this at the same time, you soon notice the slow down that occurs, due to your CPU trying to help all the programs to load, and your hard disk accessing multiple files.

Startup Delayer allows you to setup how many seconds after Windows has started to load each program. For example: If you have your mail program and a special clock starting up, then you can make your mail start say 10 seconds after Windows has loaded, and then the special clock start 20 seconds after Windows Starts.
