    You can turn off anything in your systray

    Grab this

    install it , go to control panel and select "Classic view"

    then click on the applet called startup... there you can see all the programs running

    its really good

    also msconfig does work in XP

    You can turn OFF all the stuff in your SYStray (next to the clock)

    The only thing i have running is Norton Antivirus , and i disable that before a game

    msconfig doesnt work for me either :(

    But You will love StartUPCPL

    its a fantastic app .... but you do need to swtch control panel to classic view to see the applet to use it
