Create Multiple Startup Profiles with Advanced Startup Manager

If you need to start different programs on startup, depending on what you need to do on your PC, create different startup profiles with this startup utility.

With the hacks covered in this chapter, you can customize how XP starts up. But there’s one thing these hacks won’t be able to do for you—create different startup profiles. For that, you need downloadable software.

Let’s say, for example, you have a laptop that you sometimes run attached to a keyboard, monitor, and an always-on Internet connection, and other times you travel with it, so it is not connected to the Internet. When you use it when you travel, you use it primarily in airplanes, airports, and other places where you typically aren’t connected to the Internet. You also run a piece of monitoring software that will send a signal to a call center if your laptop is stolen. You don’t need to run that software when you’re not on the road.
