But can't you do the same thing by typing msconfig command in the run option and then going to the start up tab? At least for someone who just wants control over start up programs.

Granted there are no options in it for start up delay, start up order, or different setting for different days. But I doubt if those settings would be of much use to an average user...

I already have Chameleon Start Up Manager Pro version 3.1, so why would I want to change it to this non-Pro version 3.2? Thanks but no thanks.

The last version given here was the pro version. I will stick with that. I know there are a lot of alternatives but I took a second llok at this. It does offer a nice clean interface. If you don't already use another program this is definitely worth a look. As always thank you to the GAOTD teams for all of your efforts. Thank you to the publisher, Neosoft Tools, for the offering.

the old standbys are 2 freeware programs by Mike Lin....Startup Control Panel and Startup Monitor....Startup Control Panel lets you manage what is allowed at startup but it won't allow you to delay any programs....Startup Monitor gives you a popup any time a program tries to set itself to run at startup - very handy...

and if you want to set a program to start delayed then WinPatrol allows you to select any time after bootup in minutes and seconds for a program to start...i have the Pro version of WinPatrol but i think this delayed setting option is available in the free version also....

Very nice program. What I found: Downloaded and installed easily. When program was first started, it was not registered. After shutting it down and restarting, it was registered for home use.

Could not uncheck boxes for most programs that were loading at start-up (Adobe ARM, Adobe Reader Speed Launcher, Spam Monitor, and others). Kept getting message "You must have Administrative Rights to do this" - or something like it, anyway. Installed and started Autoruns, was able to disable the progarms that Chamelion could not.

Very Nice GUI, well thought out. Startup categories listed in tree fashion -- nice! Able to save and select different startup optons. -- nice. Don't understand "Startup Filter" category, "filters" not found in help file. Right cliking on colored (blue and red) balls in the middle of the right pane brings up context menu with nice options. Did not find this info in Help file.

All in all, a very nice program. About the Admin rights - probably using the program for a while will let me find out how to handle them withoug resorting to AutoRuns.

Thanks, GAOTD and Neosoft!

And, Ashraf - I miss you, too!

Fine program, works very well. I'll keep it for the time being because it's easy with handy options, but I've managed startups (among many other things) with WinPatrol for so long, and it works so well and is so simple, I may never use Chameleon Startup Manager or let it load on boot up. I really like and appreciate the program; I just can't convince myself I need it. It's just too handy to pass up.

The main objective of all startup delayer such as this program is to hasten up windows startup for you to be able to use your computer before waiting for all the startup items to finish. This said, different people has different concept of whether it does really help in attaining such objective. In the recent giveaway Process Lasso, which I still have in my computer, the author has a different concept of how to attain such objective, and does not believe that these startup managers are of much help. Since Chamelon has been a previous giveaway, and I have tried it for some time, and have also tried Process Lasso, both of which have the same objective but different method of attaining it, I believe that there is some wisdom in the concept of Process Lasso. I also have tried Antvir, and another startup delayer, with not much help, other than controlling what sequence to startup all the startup programs.

I have used Revo Uninstaller 3x today to get this to work. I had the older version from 10/26/2009. So I have tried to get this to work, but only get the FREE version. The old one I use a lot was Pro, But I cant even get this to reg to Standard. Yes I have tuned off the anti-vir and firewall (I don`t like doing that). Is there something I'm missing? How can I get this to Standard at lest? I guess I should of not "upgraded to the new version, because I have only the FREE version and it does very little compared to the Pro or even the Standard. Please Help!!!

Nice documentation. During install it recognized my firewall/progrogramme controller and asked if I wanted detailed information on how to configure it to work with Chameleon. A "yes" resulted in a nice screenshot with step-by-step directions.

Looking forward to using this. Thx GOTD.

Win XP SP 3 . Installed fine.

I want to congratulate this software company . The install offers you the choice to create a restore point. It offers you the choice to save it where you want. They do not make you go through lots of hoops to register and activate it. On install you are then presented with an option to play a video on how to use the program. They have a button on the prog for suggestions how to improve it.

The prog works and does what it says and doers not mess up your system

Lots of other companies could learn from these people. I wish therm every success in what ever they do, and maybe their installs should also ask you whether you want to click on an option to give them your email address , to keep you informed of any other products or up dates they do .

This seems decent but msconfig (type into "run.exe') can do most of the stuff as far as controlling startup programs and services. If you don't want to download or you missed it and want to control your startup programs just use msconfig

To add to my previous comment @45, just found out the "Give Away of the Day" given in Oct 2009 was version 3.1 PRO. So, may be better to hold on to that, as the present version is STD.

Don't forget to uninstall the previous version of Chameleon Startup Manager otherwise todays version will turn up as the FREE version without some features like the time delay :-(
Just like reported from #11 Bob and #15 Zenwan

I had to use Revo Uninstaller and then reinstall todays download in order to get the STANDARD version installed.

Now it works fine - thanks Neosoft :-)

This looks like it will be handy because it helps to identify what programs some things in the task manager belong to and things that are loading that I never use. Thank you GOTD and NeoSoft.

Is there anything else free out there that will truly identify what programs or tasks are listed in task manager and whether or not they are necessary to run so as not to crash the system (like you wouldn't shut down explorer.exe but what are all the svchost.exe's - I have 10 of them showing up in task manager).

Any of you guys interested in this type of tinkering should really take a look at Soluto -- they match what seems to be the functionality of today's GOTD with a Wikipedia-like knowledge base to not only allow you to change what starts up but to know what people usually do/recommend doing about it. It is also free. See http://www.soluto.com

#16: "...It has a *startup delayer*. This is perfect for those who have a fairly large amount of programs start on boot, it’ll prevent hard drive thrashing and will cause windows to boot faster. Really Microsoft should have this feature built in."

IMHO -- & FWIW -- Microsoft Windows' crews would rather all these software developers/publishers didn't have their apps autostart from the start menu or the run keys in the registry, even if or though things like Microsoft Office use them too, because it makes Windows look bad when it takes too long to start. Personally my guess is they figure making it easier for them, like by adding an app start delay setting to Windows, would just encourage developers to abuse it more often. In many cases a program will have a helper app autostart, not because you need it, but because it helps them look good when & if you do fire up their software... the helper app might do something like pre-load parts of the program, so when you click it's icon on your desktop it starts up much faster, & you think: "Wow, these people are good programmers". They use the same logic when they add services set to start automatically with Windows rather then have them start when you start the app. Windows' Prefetch -- the same thing... they improve it & you think: "Wow, this new version of Windows really is faster". Meanwhile the stuff that really is useful & does need to start with Windows, like your mouse software, has to deal with something like the starting gate at the horse races, hoping it doesn't get knocked off the track by the competition. ;-)

The design of Chameleon Startup Manager seems well thought out, with the right amount of options & info well laid out so you're not immediately overwhelmed when you start the program. And there are options to customize the way it looks & what it shows you, with features like skin support & adding/removing columns of information. Of the 4 large buttons on the program window's toolbar, one is titled: "Request a feature" -- it's nice to know that what you think matters. :-) Besides deleting/adding apps to the Start Menu's Startup folder &/or the 2 or 3 [Windows 64] Run keys in the registry, Chameleon Startup Manager's added features work only if/when the app's running -- you can set it to start with Windows or not. Some users will prefer the free AutoRuns from SysInternals [a part of Microsoft], but others will feel it's overkill [I personally feel it's too cumbersome for simple stuff, & only use it to control things like services, drivers, & browser add-ons] -- it also doesn't have the extras like delayed start in today's GOTD. Some people prefer to control autostart apps manually -- using Regedit bookmarks to jump to the run keys takes seconds -- and/or use Windows built-in MSConfig. Unless you're firmly in one of those 2 camps IMHO Chameleon Startup Mgr is worth taking a look at.

On the left side of the program window there are 4 categories you can view one at a time. "Startup categories", the default, shows the auto-start locations in the registry & start menu for programs [i.e. .exe files] -- services, drivers etc are not included. Above it is a category named "Configuration management" -- Chameleon Startup Manager takes snapshots of the way things are setup when you 1st start the app, remembers changes, & can save snapshots you can load later on, saving you from having to enable/disable individual programs one by one. "Startup filters" seems to just show you the same info as "Startup categories", just organized or presented differently [it's not listed in the help file]. "Recycle Bin" works like Windows' Recycle Bin, giving you a 2nd chance when/if you delete something.

Programs that start with Windows take up the right 3/4 of the re-sizable program window. Here you can enable/disable autostart & get info about the listed files. Select one of lines/files, & a semi-transparent menu appears with several options, like finding the app itself on your hard drive, using Google to find out more info etc. Clicking the settings button brings up a window where you can configure how the file's started, adding for example a delay bearing in mind that if you add something like a special delay, Chameleon Startup Manager -- not Windows -- is responsible for starting that app.

Monitoring install in XP Pro SP3 32 [*MUCH* easier/quicker than in 7 64, & not *that* different], under Docs & Settings, Chameleon Startup Manager adds 4 folders, no files to both All Users \ Application Data & [UserName] \ Application Data; 12 files, 6 folders under My Documents; plus shortcuts in the Start Menu & one on the Desktop. 15 files in 2 folders are added to Program Files \ Common Files folder taking up ~4MB, while the program folder itself takes up ~5.25MB with 18 files, 1 folder. After an un-install, there are not nearly so many places to check in the registry for left-overs, as most of the 620 recorded additions are in HKLM\Software\NeosoftTools & HKCU\Software\NeosoftTools. Chameleon Startup Manager did phone home twice during 1st start -- that *might* mean that besides the GOTD wrapper [making a setup file good for one day only], the developer has their own date check.

While it's good to keep an eye on any/all apps that are set to start with Windows, they're only part of the picture -- services make for a bigger load, draining your PC's/laptop's resources before you even start to do anything like fire up an app or web browser... Task Mgr's well populated just as soon as Windows starts. Those services that are native to, included in/with Windows are more a concern in XP than in Vista or 7, and you can find info on them at sites like theeldergeek.com & blackviper.com . Apps you install may also add their own services -- for example I've had bad experiences with services added by Roxio, Cyberlink, & Creative Labs [SoundBlaster audio hardware]. So if you have a problem when Windows is starting, or want/need to maximize your system's potential, &/or just want to cure a problem, in addition to any apps, you might want to take a look at the services running in Windows too.

I have the same question as Gina #13. I have Startup Chameleon that was offered on here before, and I like it. Tis a no brainer to use! So, our question is, is it worth our time to uninstall the older version 3.1.0.636 and install this one?? I tend to think not, but what is the difference between 3.1 and 3.2??

Thank you very much for this fine utility, GOTD and Neosoft. I am a devoted Anvir Task Manager user, partly for its startup management including delayed starts. I will keep Anvir for its many other great functions, but I really like many of Chameleon's features: It's easy to set startup delays by dragging and dropping, and you can clearly see your whole startup scheme in the time line or in a list. I like the ability to specify another program that the selected one must load after. I also like the idea of multiple startup configurations and the ability to pick one at startup. I haven't tested Chameleon fully yet, but so far it looks like a winner. Thanks again!

This program is good but my only complain is why have Standard and Pro as the price difference was minimal $5 dollars difference and confusing it says on the website prices start at $15 dollars but the only prices I see is for Standard version which is $19.95 it was $24.95 for 1 user license and Pro version is $29.95 for 1 user license.

What about the license agreement in terms or major upgrades to new versions? I don't see it on your website, the least you could have is a FAQ page explaining that.

I have Process Lasso which was offer one day here and has similar features to Chameleon Startup Manager except for the startup delay features.

Actually, there is a better freeware proggy anyway r2 Studio's "Startup Delayer". Been using it for close to a year now, let's me time when programs start at boot, avoids the memory crunch of too many necessary programs starting at once.

Thanks though guys, keep up the good work!!

Installed and activated fine on WIN 7 Home Premium x64 with UAC off.

What I like about this software is that it can be used to just easily disable certain application startups or you can go much deeper to customize how start-ups are executed. For me the feature to have more than one startup configuration is really great. It means that I can have all the bells and whistles turned on in 'normal' mode, and only the bare essentials for when I run my MIDI music software where I need all the resources I can give it.

I was expecting that the 'wizard' was an automatic configuration utility. However, it is not automatic... just gives you access to the advanced features. I guess the idea is that you use it if you are a 'Wizard'. ;)

On the whole it is a versatile and useful tool. Definitely a keeper. Thanks to Neosoft Tools and GAOTD.

MY RATING : 6.0/10

SUMMARY : Key functions of the program are (1) timely arrangement/enable&disable for start-up stuffs, (2) general process info

PROs : Good user-interface, nice explaination

CONs : Nothing innovated. There's a lot of free programs which capable of performing the key function above, the developer must think of something difference like SOLUTO

Installed this program w/o problems on XP sp3. I also use Anvir's program. Not sure if I need both but will try if for awhile.
Is there any problems or conflicts with using 2 startup programs (like using more than one anti-virus at a time)?

A simple freeware solution comes from R2 Studios (http://www.r2.com.au/) called Startup Delayer. Has simular functions, including showing a loading bar at the top of your screen so you can pause, start, skip and even abort the startup. Simply drag and drop the applications in the timeline, and move to the time you want it to start. Other options are starting other applications must wait until application X has completed. Basic interface, but effective and free.

So does this affect the apps that start when a user logs into Windows, or when Windows actually starts (like a service)? I have a couple of apps I'd like to run in the background when the computer is just on and nobody is logged in (for purposes of accessing certain functions over the local network), and I've been looking for a solution since I can't figure out how to make them work as a service.

When installing, it automatically creates a system restore point, which is a good practice.

The program tries to activate itself and you'll have to wait for a while if (like me) you're behind a proxy server to receive the notification that "The activation Failed". Don't execute the installation file again or you'll end up with multiple instances of the same program all popping-up when timeout occurs (guess who did this). If you're behind a firewall then select press "yes" to the next question "Are you behind a firewall proxy" and type your proxy configuration and it works flawlessly ("autodetect proxy" didn't work in my case).

When the program starts, you'll be prompted to view a video showing you how to use the program. I found it very comprehensive although the program is very user friendly itself.

As others mentioned before me, this program is for the Standard Version.

The only features left out on this version comparing with the PRO version are:

Working in Windows Vista/7 without UAC prompts
Applying configurations 'on-the-fly' without restarting Windows
Change startup profiles for all Windows users


All other features are included in the offer:
Change startup order by specifying a startup delay
Select the startup configuration at Windows start-up
Black list
Monitor real time changes in the startup list
Start programs after another program is launched (also with a delay option)
Selecting on what days should programs be run
Possibility to restore all changes
Possibility to сancel any changes (preserve the system state or for each program)
Setting the startup priority
Startup configurations management
Allow to add, edit, disable and remove startup programs


My opinion after using it is: YDWTMI: You Don't Want to Miss it!

There's another program that I also use (is currently in Beta but is extremely useful to me) to optimize my startup time which is: http://www.soluto.com/

I have used a commercial startup program for many years. Its utility in setting the delay interval and re-organizing the start-up sequence has been very valuable. Chameleon Start Up Manager definitely improves on the product I have been using by putting in an excellent and straight forward GUI, and giving the options of different configurations for different purposes, such as games and multimedia. The back-ups are a wonderful feature as well.

It installed easily on my Win 7 64 bit Home Premium laptop.

My problem in #15 was resolved. I contacted support at the Neosoft home page, and Evgeni responded almost immediately.
I had been running a previous version of this program, and I had uninstalled it first, but checked the box for 'keep settings'. I was told to uninstall again, but uncheck that box, which I did. Then I added it to the exception list for my firewall, and when I installed again, it worked.

I'm really impressed with this level of service for a giveaway. Thank you!
And I'd like to add that I've used the free version of this for years, and I think it's really worthwhile. I like the startup delay also, as well as knowing when any program tries to add itself to my startup list, as Real Player and Adobe, amongst others, always try to do. I recommend it often.

To all:
if you have any problems with activation, try to do next:
1. Allow the program to access a internet or disable a firewall
2. Uninstall the program without settings keeping and install again
