I don't know if the 'subject' explains want I want correctly. In linux when you start up you can see all the processes that are starting.. its basically text rolling up the screen with some sort of indication of "ok" to the right. Can this sort of thing be done in xp??
Thx for the quick responce... it works but you are correct in saying it is nothing like the linux start up. I still have the screen that says "loading your personal settings" anyway to get rid of that also??
yes I read that tweak in another thread ... it does give a few more things.. I haven't seen anything how to get rid of the "loading your settings" screen or then "saving your settings" screen on shutdown :\
Improve Shutdown. Lets not save your active session's settings on exit
If you Don't care which windows app was located where when you are shutting down the system, this tip may in fact help improve the shutdown time a bit (a bit not too much)..Simply inform windows not to save the settings at exit time. To do this , open registry by going to START-RUN and entering regedit. Navigate to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer] . In this look for value of "NoSaveSettings". If available, do one of the following:
If you want to enable no save on exit, set its value to 1 else to save on exit. set it back to 0.
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
