Windows 7: Can you rearrange item order in startup

Can you rearrange item order in startup

Hello,
I don't know the tech term for it, but basically is there a way to rearrange what programs start up and their order and give them delays. For instance I would like the AV/Malware to start before any actual communication from any other starting programs to the net, for instance.
Thanks for any help, you guy probably have a tutorial on it, but I don't know how to search for them yet.

This may help: Download Start-Q. You can also schedule delayed startups (e.g. with WinPatrol) and arrange the timing to your desire.

The startup tutorial says nothing about delaying program startups or timing.

I used to have such a program and used it for a while and decided it was of no particular benefit, although it did as advertised.

Here is one such, Google for more:

Hey Gentlemen,
Thanks for joining in the discussion. I just looked, quickly and didn't see anything except deleting or adding startup programs. I had thought about rearranging their order, as it is now random, and delays to let the program fully start before the next on begins.
Of course, I have no experience in it's usefulness, but overtly it sounds like it might be a good idea.
Thanks for the links to the software. I trust you guy's opinions as you have answered and helped me before.
Maybe I should start a thread for if it is of value and to what percentage does it help. Thinking about it.
Thank you all, you knowledgeable son's of guns.

Another similar program is Startup Cop. The benefit of using such soft becomes obvious when using, for example, disk service packages like Acronis etc. that load service managers at startup requiring network access to ID local hard drives. When Antivirus & Firewall is selected to start first, the whole startup process is greatly accelerated, and there is no delay to start network services and disk service managers. If they don't start, one can't defrag or backup the drives. There are some other benefits, many center around starting AV services first at boot compare to other programs. Despite most AV have their own startup priorities, its not always endup in fast Windows boot, unless manually corrected.

Hello zamar21,
I certainly will take a look at it. My startup is slower now then before. Microsoft had a program I heard about for XP call BootVis, that supposedly tested and then prioritized the startup. Haven't heard about a W7 version. Thanks for the link.
