Get Rid Of Those Memory Hogging Startup Items

This is a true story. One time, my sister-in-law was complaining about how slow and sluggish her PC was becoming, so I said I would take a look at it. No lie, she had so many startup items running in her system tray that it actually took up TWO rows at the bottom of the screen! Many of us don't realize that a lot of the software applications that we install also install monitors, quickstart apps, and various other programs that automatically run when Windows boots up. Each of these startup items eats away at available memory, and if you have enough of them, they can bring your system to its knees.

Thanks to InControl, though, you can finally get a handle on all of these startup apps and get rid of the ones you don't really need. Just imagine a world where your PC boots quickly and cleanly, letting you get down to business that much faster!

When you launch InControl, the program presents you with a well-organized list of every startup program that's running, including the most important part - how much memory each program is eating up. From there, you choose which applications to terminate, and you can even opt to add applications to a blacklist, ensuring that they'll never come back ever again, even on cold reboots. InControl even has a nifty History Viewer that keeps track of all of the changes that you make, so you can always undo a deletion no matter how much time has passed! To be doubly safe, you can even export the history information to an external file for easy backup and recovery.

One more thing - InControl also gives you a bonus tool called Heal My PC, which scans your system and fixes and registry and configuration problems that have been caused by wayward programs!
