Hello, Everyone, I want to inprove my surfing by getting rid of un-needed running programs at Startup(especially in the Processes running in Taskmanager! My question is How do i know which ones to uncheck and which ones not too? I know there is a spot on the pc thats you can go to and it tells you what they are but even when they say what they are,i have not idea as to whether i can uncheck them! Is there a web site that can tell you exactly what you can do without and what you cannot do without? please let me know any idea's, TOM

You can safely remove all of them ...... except rundll32

The only one i have is Norton Antivirus 2002 at startup = navapw32

All the rest are removed

You can check out this program here:
Startup Control Panel
Better thn MSconfig.
Also if you visit the Black Viper site take his warnings VERY SERIOUSLY-if you don't know what it is or if you need it, leave it alone or switch it to manual. I followed along with his suggestions, no ill effects per se, but really didn't notice any memory/speed gains. Of course I am running with 512 meg RAM and am not gaming, or doing anything intensive. I think the program above will do what you want just fine

Max, Thank You for the web site, i will look into it. but even with a web site like this don't you have to know what programs you need and which you don't? I was into my pc before and found out what these programs are but i forget how to get to it, it was a Tweak tip! Even then it told me what the program was but i still had no idea as to needing it or not? Do you know how to reach the What are these programs in your PC? Maybe if i could find them again it might help.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
