In my msconfig/startup I have several repeated items, eg Load Power profile, scheduling Agent etc. How can I get rid of the duplicates?
Thanks for your help.

Be carefull. You NEED BOTH "load power profile" entrys.

Bearing in mind the above advice download and run RegCleaner. It alows you to romove items from the startup(MSCONFIG) menu

A bit more - I have unticked both Scheduling agent & Task Monitor. Someone recently on this forum listed a web site that explains them all, so maybe they will re-post.

goto http://www.superrsoft.com and download Super Rabbit Magic Set, That'll solve all your start-up worries now and forever more!

Eeek - a bit costly. Appears to do much the same as RegCleaner.

Yes, apparently you do if you actually use them but they aren't essential. Well, I hope they aren't because I've unticked mine. :D

The website previously mentioned to check your startup items is pacs-portal (http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_content.htm).

Something I read here - one I think is pre-windows - the other post W. Not sure what they are, but these days my motto is "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" Been down that road a few too many times - got very good at re-formatting etc though.

loadpowerprofile simply loads your custom configuration for the power managment scheme you currently have setup. i.e. allways on, desktop, portable etc.
