    I currently use StartUp Control Panel by Mike Lin along with Spybot Search & Destroy's TeaTimer and Ad-Aware's Ad-Watch.

    Which of these is best to use and is using all three at the same time more of an hassle than a problem or no?

    Probably best to use just one if they all do the same thing. I just use msconfig.

    msconfig here too, and a good idea to check all the start up folders and delete what you don't want starting at startup.

    Well Startup control panel doesn't run live and monitor the startup keys/directories it just tells you what they are. I've found msconfig doesn't always show some things on it, so I use the SUCP addon also.

    TeaTimer and Ad-Watch will do the same thing in relation to montioring the startup folders/keys. although it has been reported that they sometimes have diffferent results in detecting spy/ad ware.

    So really the choice is yours, Spybot and ad-aware will monitor live the startup stuff whilst (i don't think) they let you change the current stuff thats already there. and SUCP is the oppoist
