Delaying Auto-start Programs at Windows Boot

All the programs that starts automatically at the beginning of Windows Startup will be listed out for your reference, including program icon, product name, description and company. If an entry is unnecessary to start with Windows boot, right click and choose "Delay" it, or click "Edit", you can also find "Delay" in the list. Therefore, programs will start in sequence according to the default delay time. The delay interval is set in seconds. The default is 30 seconds and the maximum interval is 270 seconds.

Deactivating and Deleting Entries

Right click an entry and choose to disable it, and the program will no longer be started the next time you start Windows. Or click "Edit", you can also find "Disable this entry" in the list. In this way, you can find out for certain whether the entry is needed.

If something doesn't work properly the next time you start Windows, all you have to do is "Enable this entry". If you are certain that you no longer need an entry, you can entirely remove it by right clicking and choosing "Delete this entry" from the list.

Add Program to Launch Automatically and Schedule the Delay Time

If you wish to add a program to one of the startup folders yourself, click "Add program..." on page of Startup Programs, or click "Edit", you can also find "Add program..." in the list. Enter the name of the desired application in the dialog and enter the directory path of the program file in the Path/Command Line box. You can use the Browse... button to help you find the file. You may also edit any of the existing listed items in order to move them from one location to another, change their program description, or update the command line that is being used to start the item.

Here you can also schedule the delay time as you need. You can set it to auto-start 30 seconds later after windows boot. Therefore, programs will start in sequence according to the delay interval preset by you. The delay interval is set in seconds, the default is 30 seconds and the maximum interval is 270 seconds. Or you can enter the time constant by yourself.

Delete or Restore a Backup with Undo Changes

A dialog will pop up showing you the programs that you've changed. According the days, you can choose to restore or delete these backups that are showed with some information, including operating time, location, program name and operating status.
