    Hi,

    I have Windows XP. I have been having problems with my Logitech SetPoint/Wave keyboard and mouse. I was advised to Boot clean to find what the problem was. What does Boot clean mean?

    Thank you.

    I wonder if they are refering to Boot into Safe Mode?????? I have never heard of Boot Clean. When booting, Press F8 (May be a diff key, mine is F8) and choose the safe mode option.

    They may also be referring to a selective startup: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...-Configuration

    That's my best guess.

    Thank you Ted and Jonathan for your responses.

    I think that Jonathan hit it right on the head, i.e., selective startup. For it allows you to selectively halt this or that program at startup until you find that special program that is causing the conflict. The link that Johnathan furnished reads, in part, as follows:

    Run Selective Startup using System Configuration

    System Configuration is an advanced tool that can help identify problems that might prevent Windows from starting correctly. If you identify a program that is causing problems, you can check for updates or uninstall the program.

    Using the Selective Startup option, you can turn services and startup programs on or off individually to see if the problem occurs the next time you restart your computer. If you select a check box, the service or startup program will run when you restart Windows. If the check box is cleared, the service or startup program will not run when you restart the computer.

    I have tried everything that the Logitech Help Center directed me to do to get my SetPoint to download with tabs that permit the setting of preferences, etc. All to no avail.
    So, I just erased the SetPoint software from my computer and ordered a Lenovo keyboard and mouse combination. Currently I am using the Logitech mouse and keyboard. Both work, but without the extra functions. The keyboard, however, does not keep up with my typing and many times I must retype words where characters did not post. For example, if I type The very quickly, the T does not take and I have to go back and correct he. I am finished with Logitech for a while.
