Create non-annoying reminders and manage desktop notes with just one or two mouse clicks.

JetStart Pro is a unique tool, that enables you to manage your Windows Start Menu more efficiently, and launch your favorite or recently accessed applications with just a few clicks. The program offers multiple ways to access your program: You can sort them into categories, select them from a list of recently used or newly added programs or search from them by keyword.

JetStart Pro adds an alternative menu to the Start button that appears when you hover your mouse over it (click on it to get the regular menu) and shows your categorized programs as well as recently used applications. In addition, you can access them from a tray icon, hidden edge menus, and also create a floating toolbar that can be displayed by clicking the icon.

Here's the crash info. Hope it helps. I've now uninstalled it because it's quite useless.

At 18% of caching icons, this happens:
JetStart has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Had the same problem as Pete on XP SP 2.

Crashed halfway through caching EVERY time. I can't give you anymore details as I've uninstalled it.

This also happened with the freeware version I tried some months ago.

Good luck with the website - it's a nice variant on the free/low-cost software sites. Would be nice to see some software that is a clear league above freeware.

I've been looking for a solution along these lines. I have been getting a lot of use out of this since I picked it up. I recommend those who missed the giveaway give the software a trial. Very easy to use. Simple but has some really advanced features too.

I like your site and the idea behind it.
As to this program, I downloaded it and installed it on 3 of our coumputers. It worked on only one. Specifically, hovering the mouse over the start button did nothing. (Yes, it's checked in 'prefs.")
This morning, the computer that worked has the same issue, no pop up menu. I pulled it off the other 2 and will pull it off this one, as that's the main advantage of the program.
FYI when you uninstall, you're sent to the site to give feedback as to why you uninstalled. The problem I have with that is "Add-remove programs" freezes UNTIL you CLOSE the opened browser window (FF) I almost re-booted before I tried that.

Is there a manual or help file available for Jetstart Pro? Can't find anything on the Publisher's site or within the download.

I like you site & really appreciate what you do. I think it's a great way to expose people to what is out there.

I do have a question though. Since you can only use the activation key the day it's offered for free, what do you do if you have to reload it? Is there a way to back it up & if so how?

Thank you!

hmmm, seems a little ironic that a website that gives away tons of software, now is giving away software to manage the software that you've downloaded! actually, i think the program is really good. If your like me and have tons of apps, than this is good for you.


but yes, i would like to see more "popular" software on the site every now and then. But really, you guys have done a great job, i love your site, its a great idea all around and is executed rather nicely, I tell everyone i know about this place :)

Program is crap. Always crashes on startup under XP SP2 when it does its first scan of whatever it is scanning.

The idea of this website is very good.
However I would like to see more popular software available here.

Otherwise I just check the site everyday but never download anything.

What about ACDSee 3.0? Now a free license for it - this is what I call an offer.

ConvertXToDVD
Everest
PerfectDisk 7.0
PowerDVD 5.0
WinISO 5.3

This is what I call an offer and will drive a lot of new friends of this website.

Just my 0,02$

Not a bad program... takes the hassles out of going through a bunch of steps... so it is a time saver. And it puts it all in one window. It's a keeper.

Helper, by activating the software you will get a Pro version, registered one, which in fact costs $19.90.

After checking it out I think it's going to be useful for me as i need a good housekeeping tool. I'd recommend this to anyone who spends a lot of time on their home computer; especially if they download lots from the internet. Nice One!

Launchy is better, IMO.

Their web site says the program is FREE. Not 19.99. So, what's the deal here anyway.

Not a bad little launcher. The "edge menu" is a very nice feature and if it supports multihead setups properly it's a potential upgrade from Pop-Mouse.

Good software but not that much important for most of the people. Although trying to make faster but there is no need of this program for lots of people.
