Best to just turn off everything except AV and gadgets unless there's one or two others you can't wait to startup when needed. Win7 performance will show its appreciation.
Each to their own of course Greg. I've used WP for years and suffered only one minor glitch with a particular update. Otherwise it's always saved me far more boot time than it costs. When I installed Soluto (for a looksee) it calculated that WP added under two seconds. It suits me because it delivers the volume of starts I require in 44 seconds, whereas Windows/msconfig is over a minute.
I have to agree. I use it all the time (the pro version) and never had a problem. I like it especially for easy of delaying startups. Besides it is a good watchdog.
