View Full Version : msconfig - start up

05-05-2004, 01:43 AM
Any one able to point me to a site that can tell me what all the (well most of them, actually any of them) 'Titles' in the 'Start up' tab in 'MSCONFIG' are all about please?

Some of them I can understand but I'm not sure whether to stop them loading at start up or not. Others seem to be for scanners ('WATCH'???) but I'm not sure!

And what about deleting them from the start up list? Can it be done?

All answers on a post card to....!!

Hope you can help :D

I'm not sure of any web site, but a freebie called spybot, which
searches for spyware, also gives an explanation of each listing
in startup.

after instalation, open spybot in advanced mode, click tools, and
then startup. clicking each entry, will produce a popup with an explanation of that entry.

good luck,
