Start Menu Cleaner

Start Menu Cleaner is a freeware utility, which cleans the start menu by removing unneeded shortcuts and folders. Most applications add folders and shortcuts to the start menu. The problem is, when you remove a program, sometimes its folders and shortcuts remain in the start menu. After a while, this can make the start menu messy and cluttered up. Start Menu Cleaner scans all shortcuts in your start menu and removes empty folders and shortcuts which points to files that no longer exist. The result is a smaller, cleaner and more efficient start menu.
