About the program About KPS
During starup Windows 95/98 runs many programs and services. You may even don't know about it, but they take the memory as well as procesor's time. Moreover they can cause the system's stability lose. You can turn them off, but it's uncomfortable. You can get rid of them, but sometimes you need their services. Now there is WSM to solve your problems. It will allow you to create "profiles" containing any autostart elements and every other program or document. During system startup just choose the profile you want, and that's it. Many programs will like the possibility of running them on a clean system what, on common system, can give you 6 MB more memory ! But that's not all ! WSM allows you to run any program as the ONLY process on the system (even without Explorer or any other shell) what can give you even more then 10 MB and much higher stability. This option is a "must have" for any PC gamer.
KPS (Kids Protection System) allows you to control what application your kids can run. You can create a list of programs. If KPS is enabled a password dialog will appear during startup. If the user don't know the KPS password, he/she will be only able to run one program from the list. The program will be run on a clean system (without shell) so it will be impossible to run anything else.
You can also set the system password. Without it it will be even impossible to run anything from KPS list.
KPS is a part of Windows Startup Manager, but it is also available as GateKeeper with more advanced features concerning system access and running applications on a clean system.
