    Startup Items (XP SP-2)

    If I use msconfig and uncheck "Load startup items" on the General tab, and then re-start, some items "slip through"... they start even though they were turned off, and if I go back and look, the selection is now only "partially turned off".

    How does this happen?

    How can you control what items "slip through" and what items do not?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Try selecting 'Disable All' on the Startup Tab.

    Chuck,
    What are you trying to do now?
    There are some basic files that must be run in order to have Windows run.

    Maybe if you told us what you are trying to accomplish, we can give more direct advice?

    Now don't be mean...

    Those in the list I posted aren't necessary... they're just sometimes "in the way".

    Chuck as for SYSTRAYX, do you need it? You may as well uninstall it as it is not a native Windows application? <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    That happens to be one that is real easy to control -- and one that I know thoroughly and can shut down in one click...

    Re: Startup Items (XP SP-2)

    Well it is i one way Jerry... it gets by the "Disable All" on the msconfig tab as well...

    There must be some service (?) that msconfig ignores that can be used to bypass any "Don't Start" flag that utilities like msconfig set...

    Regards,
    Chuck

    Funny you should mention that, Jerry... I was just thinking the other day about a vacation... England, perhaps? <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39> <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23> <img src=/S/sailing.gif border=0 alt=sailing width=25 height=25>
