    Just a quicky..i have confidence in you guys/gals that you can answer this one pretty quick...


    A friend of mine has Windows 2000 Pro and is getting annoyed at the fact the mIRC (is that a chat program?) keeps loading up with Windows.

    How does he stop this happening as it is starting to grate on him now!!?

    Im not familiar with Win2000 Pro - can he use the ol' msconfig command from Run to see what is starting up?

    Thank you!
