This program is just like NeoSmart Technologies iReboot : It allows you to pick the os you boot into next but unlike iReboot this one is free and will be supported here as long as it gets some sort of interest :D

How To Use

#1: Just select your operating system from the list and click!!!
#2: Reboot :D

#2. Options to reboot on selection.
#3. Uptime information and other system information.
#4. Start with windows (start with the Reboot-To service) options.

#5. Options to reboot back into your default OS.

#:Virus Total Information

#1. One AV reports this as bad. It is a false positive.
#2. The Microsoft family of AVs don't know what this is (obfuscator I used to protect the code.). It is fine. I've already reported it and all that. :p
