ViStart - XP start menu replacement looks like Vista

Posted by ClifNotes, Jun 2008, permalink Desktop Tools


I've reviewed other start menu replacements. Each has it's strong points and weaknesses.


ViStart's strong points are the slick Vista look but it really shines as a search engine that finds the programs and personal files you were looking for with blazing speed.


It's weakness is the loading time it takes when started. This desktop enhancement may not be for everyone, but it fills a need for those people who don't organize their start menus but still want to find their programs and files fast.


ViStart is offered as a zip download containing a single executable file. There is no installation needed. Just unzip it, move it where you want to keep it, and run it.

ViStart is a perfect start menu replacement for Windows XP. ViStart will now index all personal files and program files and give *ACTUAL instant results* thats 4 times faster then the real Vista start menu....
