Well the installation of this program had a minor snag in it. Though it does let you put the program where you want it, it creates a Bonzai folder as a sub folder of your Program Files folder. Nothing to be really concerned about.

This program fulfills a real need for those of us who are not masters of the registry. The reason is that lots of programs these days will add unwanted items to your Startup Menu and System Tray and then hide the ability to remove them. A case in point Netscape 6 installs RealPlayer in your System tray and it is bitch removing it. Not anymore with Bonzai Startup Manager. With Bonzai Startup Manager you can safely and easily remove these pesky programs. The reason safely is that it will Backup and Restore your entries.

It not only will remove stuff from your StartUp folder, it also has a Wizard to add items. Plus you can modify your Boot Options and you can select the following tasks to be done when your system starts, Empty Temp Folder, Empty IE's Temp files cache and Empty the Recycle Bin.

In conclusion, if you do any downloading and installing of programs Bonzai Startup Manager is a must have!
