You can turn off anything in your systray

Grab this http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

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

:cool:
