With Win 2000 - how do I choose my options at startup?

Since installing MS Windows Media Player it defaults to opening when I first start up my PC - where do i go to stop this?


It may be unrelated but since about the same time I can no longer get sound on any Flash based pages.

Oh I thought you meant the Windows load options (press F8 continuously during boot, past BIOS)

Okay.. but
is there not a tool/option menu within Win2000 already, rather than downloading another programme?

Start ---> Run ---> msconfig

See What Startup Programs Are in win 2000

right-click My Computer, and choose Manage (or Start, Programs, Administrative Tools, Computer Management). In the left-hand pane of the Computer Management tool, expand System Tools, then expand System Information, then expand Software Environment. Click on Startup Programs, and a summary list programs/software will be displayed, no matter what the source of the startup is (Registry or Start Menu).
