Free App of the Day

On Twitter I watch GiveawayotDay.  Today they have a free program that is a plus in my book.  I have worked on many a machine that has all kinds of nonsense running in the background.  Why vendors continue to put these little apps into the startup is beyond me.  I especially don’t like it when they do this without asking.  One that almost everyone installs that is guilty of this is Adobe Acrobat Reader.  It loads the speed launcher into the registry without asking.  It may help the specific program, but the overall effect of these is a slower running machine.

The program they are offering today is called Startup Defender. This program monitors your machine and will notify you when any package attempts to load into startup.
