Watch 4 Start

Program: Watch 4 Start Version:1.0
Author: LeeLu Soft
Website: [ http://leelusoft.altervista.org/watch-4-start.html ]
Download: [ 1.5 Mb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: When a Microsoft Windows OS starts, it can auto load programs from different locations like special registry keys, special startup folders and initialization files. In some cases, applications are adding themselves to those auto loading locations without even asking or notifying the user, and on the next restart, the user is "surprised" to find different applications popping out from nowhere or running in the background without his permission. Watch 4 Start is a simple to use and powerful monitoring and automation tool to monitor changes in those startup locations. It is a small, portable, with small footprint and simple to use utility. Watch 4 Start doesn't prevent or block applications from modifying any of the startup locations, it will just inform you about the changes and will point you the change location. It is your decision if you want to keep the changes or not. Watch 4 Start can also execute actions when a change occurs.

sTray

Program: sTray Version:1.0
Author: Skwire Empire
Website: [ http://skwire.dcmembers.com/fp/?page=stray ]
Download: [ 108 Kb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: Tiny, tray-based utility that gives you the option to shutdown, restart, switch user, log off, lock, sleep, or hibernate your computer. I use Microsoft’s Remote Desktop (RDP) a lot for the various computers and VMs that I deal with. RDP works great but has one drawback and that is, for whatever reason Microsoft has, the normal shutdown and reboot commands are missing from the Start Menu when you’re working on a computer remotely. Yes, you can use the shutdown command via the commandline or you can click the taskbar and press Alt-F4, etc, but not everybody is comfortable using the commandline or remembers that hotkey. Hence, this simple utility.
