    Got a question for yall ... I remember way back when, when I had Win98 and I saw a tweak about running msconfig and under the general tab ... if you clicked on selective startup ... and only choose the most important ones .. that it would speed up your boot time. Is this the case again for WinXP? (cause all of these look pretty important .. but can you get by without starting some of em?)

    It is possible, but be very careful and selective. Most of the XP specific entries look like XP specific entries. You will obviously have to leave in any anti-virus / firewall bits. Play around and untick a couple and if something important doesn't work, you know why!!

    Nice that you can save these services as a reg file, that would come in very handy the amount I find myself reformatting :p

    I-Aqua - You apparently have a lot of time on your hands.;)

    EP - Yes, and we have our own Dirk Diggler to thank for that. Very creative young man that Dirk.
