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:

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!
