Argus Boot Accelerator 1.0.02
Cut your PC boot time with this powerful utility

Argus Boot Accelerator is an interesting tool which aims to help you accelerate your PC's boot time.

The first way it does this is by allowing you to launch your startup programs sequentially, rather than all at the same time (which is the normal situation). Drag and drop important programs into the "Managed Startup Items" box and Argus Boot Accelerator will start them in the order you specify; place critical programs high on the list and they'll be loaded more quickly, so you can get to work right away.

The second big improvement is you're able to set a delay for each item, a time that Argus Boot Accelerator will wait before it launches the next program. Which helps individual programs (and Windows) load more quickly, because your hard drive isn't thrashing with everything trying to load at exactly the same time.

And if that's not enough, there are lots of smaller tweaks which you can apply to affect each startup program.

You're able to set the process priority, for instance. Give an important process the "above normal" priority and it'll get more attention from Windows, loading a little faster.

You can prevent a program loading until the CPU is idle.

And you can even have some startup programs loaded only on certain days of the week.

Please note, while this works well enough, if you need more there is also a Professional version available. This adds extra features, such as the ability to configure the startup of services as well as regular programs, and can be yours for $2.99. Find out more at the program site.

Verdict:

Argus Boot Accelerator is a configurable and powerful startup manager. Keep in mind that you have to do most of the work in setting up your system optimally, though - and that can take a while.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
