    Default "fork great program" and "teatimer"

    After reading Misty's thread about needing extra ram or not, I saw Growly mention about using msconfig to see what programmes were starting up etc.

    I just had a look, and found these programs in the list:
    fork great programme, and tea timer.

    Have never heard of it before. I've disabled it now, because these programme sound a bit dodgy.

    Have tried searching in google, and haven't been able to get any specific information about them, in terms of them being a computer-related thing. (the search yielded results like English Teas, and "North Fork Ranch and Fishing Lodge")

    So is it safe to leave it enabled?

    Teatimer - Yes. It's part of the rel time defence against interlopers.

    In the msconfig > startup window can you see what command is for the "fork" entry, it will be a location on your HD as to where the program is loading from, this maybe will give you a little more info as to what it is.

    Unless someone else says otherwise turn it off, if you notice something dosent work or is missing afterwards turn it back on.
