I have no problem using Startup Cop Pro 2, but here is why I suggest that include a delayed start. Others are not so sophisticated. Thus, they are less likely to blend a mix of utilities together. Now, if it turns out that someone sets up BPM and their PC boots substantially slower, then they probably will not use it any further. Granted BPM is freeware, but if you are ever thinking of selling it, then this could be a problem for you.
Regarding user "sophistication" ... and turning BPM into a product. If you want to go down that path, then BPM should have two main modes:
(1) There should be an automatic mode that tends to get better (and demonstrable improved performance ie. some easy metrics) such that someone can just install BPM on their quad core and see a real improvement without understanding technology.
(2) There should be the existing rule based approach for those who are technically inclined.
Sort of think of BPM like many firewalls out there. Most personal consumer firewalls these days can simply be loaded and ignored by the non-technical. However, for the technical, you open or block specific ports ...
By the way, I mentioned that I am investor in a French PC games company, www.ageod.com.
Well, although for other game companies I have done testing, promotion, and strategy guides. For AGE Studio, I am actually the Business Advisor. So, I offer you this little bit of advice if you are interested one day selling BPM. I hope you don't mind.
