The Cause:
Your PC may be off to a slow start because of a Windows start-up traffic jam—which is what happens when too many applications and services are set up to automatically load every time you turn on your PC. While some of these programs are required and desired, many are unnecessary resource hogs that only contribute to slow loading times and overall PC system slowdown.

The Fix:
Startup Optimizer™, included in System Mechanic 10.5, uses research-based classifications from iolo Labs to automatically detect unneeded (as well as potentially dangerous) startup items. Your important programs will start even faster, and unnecessary ones are prevented from clogging up the Windows startup process. Startup Optimizer is one of the most powerful tools you can use when chasing down ways to reduce the time it takes to start Windows and squeeze increased horsepower from your PC!

How it works:
PC experts agree that one of the best ways to improve Windows startup time is to eliminate unnecessary programs and applications from loading during the Windows startup process. Besides creating a bottleneck that slows down the startup process, these unneeded items may continue to run in the background even after Windows has loaded, acting as invisible drains on your system's resources.

While there are many benefits to stopping these unnecessary (and sometimes even dangerous) programs, even experienced users struggle with the difference between startup items that can be safely removed and applications and services that are essential to the startup process—and if you accidentally remove an important or frequently-used startup item, it could result in even greater PC headaches than before!

Startup Optimizer takes the guesswork out of this process by automatically detecting and deactivating unnecessary startup programs. Informed by the latest Tune-up Definitions™ from iolo Labs, Startup Optimizer accurately analyzes the range of performance-leeching programs that cause startup delays, and safely divines the subset that should be deactivated for maximum performance.

Enhanced and improved for System Mechanic 10.5
In preparation for System Mechanic 10.5, iolo Labs researched thousands of new programs—many exclusive to Windows 7 and Vista—which set themselves to load up with the Windows startup process. Each program was analyzed and then categorized as being necessary, optional, unnecessary, or dangerous.

iolo Labs also invested time researching Windows services, which are hidden programs that start with Windows and remain silently running in the background. In many cases, dozens of unneeded services that leech memory and CPU resources are turned on as part of the default Windows setup, even though they are never needed by the user. Without a tool like Startup Optimizer, services that may be inappropriate altogether for your particular system configuration are repetitively loaded every time you start your computer. The time it takes each of these unnecessary services to load adds to the frustrating waiting period between the instant you power on and the moment you can finally get to work.

According to tests by iolo Labs, shedding unneeded startup programs has consistently proven to be the absolute best way to improve PC performance. System Mechanic's enhanced Startup Optimizer makes this process faster, safer, and easier than ever before—so you can say good-bye to slow start times!
