  1. StartUpLite v1.07 hasn't been updated for several years now and only finds unnecessary startup items on 32-bit version of Windows. If you are using a 64-bit version of Windows, it will never find anything as the startup locations are different I believe. @Marcin (site owner) said a year or so ago he was going to do a decent update of this awesome program (that I used to used very often with great success) but this never happened. If anyone else knows if this will ever be updated again, please post here!
  2. So do I need to run MBAR separately still or is the full functionality of that now incorporated in this new version (assuming I manually tick the check for rootkits box) ?
  3. I still use this program very regularly, but it doesn't ever detect any startups on anything 64-bit, which I presume is because they are stored in a different place? Also, it never, ever finds anything on Windows 8/8.1 probably for the same reasons as above. I'm not even asking for any new definitions to be added, just that it knows where to look on the above mentioned systems...PLEASE!!!
  4. Who is supposed to be moderating this forum and answering any technical questions as they seem to be AWOL.
  5. According to the latest version for home users is 5.11 I realise that the Malwarebytes version is not exactly the same as it scans for malware before uploading, but in principle it should be up to a very similar version with all the improvements/fixes.
  6. Can it be confirmed that the very latest version of this software is: Version 1.2 Core Version: It's not been updated to a newer version for ages!
  7. I've been using the manually select files option since the beginning as I like full control over what is backed up & when, but I'm wondering if there's a default amount of elapsed time after which the software assumes the file must be new and backs it up again with the newer date, often creating an exact copy of something that may not have actually changed in any way? I was hoping to select a folder that may have just a few new files from the previous folder backup and the software would simply check & only upload the previously not uploaded (new) files, but even after just a couple of weeks, it assumes everything in the folder needs to be re-backed up!
  8. 1) Having just recently started to use this product, I was wondering if it's possible to have the upload speed listed during the (long) upload process? It seems to only upload about 1GB per hour on average, which is not that fast when you've got 100GB to upload and just want to get it done asap! 2) On the "Upload Agent" screen, what does Protected Files mean? 3) "Backup Set" never seems to be accurate for some reason? It always seem to inflate the number of files to be uploaded. 4) Can the "maximise" button be enabled on the Upload Agent Screen as I like to tick "show details" and watch as the files are uploaded which is easier if I could maximise the screen! 5) Can an option be added to enable me to always "show details" & untick "Close when Complete" by default? Looking forward to your reply.
  9. I also use Startup Lite regularly in addition to Autoruns as it's a quick way to stop unneeded programs that I may not recognise using Autoruns. It works perfectly on Windows 7, but the database could do with being updated, which I'm happy to assist in any way I can as I'm always removing unnecessary programs from clients laptops etc... Any comment Marcin?
  10. Is this still on schedule? I'd be lost without this easy-to-use utility for quickly disabling unknown (to me) startups that are unneeded.
  11. Have you had a chance to start on the "rewrite" yet? I'm keeping a close eye out for useless junk thats starts up with branded laptops in particular.
  12. has been so useful to me.
  13. I realise that there are several other software projects happening on this site, but this excellent, most useful program is being left to stagnate. Maybe a push is needed on the site to get some new startups to add to the database? Brand specific programs are the most useful to have, i.e. Dell, Lenovo, HP etc.. as most new machines tend to come full of junk which can be removed easily.
  14. I've just used the internal updater to go from 1.12 to 1.14 and it downloaded the new version, then the updated definitions, then disappeared and I had to manually restart the program. This has been happening for many versions but I thought it was just my PC playing up, but maybe not after reading these threads.
  15. Has this project been discontinued as there has been no updates of any sort for several months? I'm quite sure that there are new startups appearing all the time which could be added to the database.
