I just started to use windows 2000 pro and I dont know how to edit the things i want to start up with windows besides deleting crap out of the start up folder. But what i want to do is what msconfig does for win98&^. How can I do this with win2k because some stuff starts up that aint even in the start up folder.... such as the ati video card crap and callwave, etc.

just get the msconfig.exe file from someone that has w98 or download the WinXP version which will work on w2k from here and copy it to %systemroot%/system. When you run it, if you got it from w98, just ignore the errors it gives you about the files it cant find.

Or simply go to the control panel and edit the services that start on startup (control panel -> administrative tools -> services)

pred i must correct ur last post!

yes u r right that u can stop "services" from there but the software needs to be installed as a service in order to be listed there!

for example distributed.net client will be listed as a service cause its installed as a service! (**** bitches dont remove the service either when u uninstall so u keep doing work for them after u think u aint )

best bets are always registry editing, both Local Machine and Current User should be edited for optimal results!

hit windows key + r and type regedit! then just browse to see the proggies in the startup keys and remove what u dont want there! its safe to delete anything in those folders!

amen brother! So many people fear the registry so freakin much. I probably poke around in the registry 3 times a week - very commonly finding myself deleting a bunch of crap that doesn't need to be there.

The registry is window's garbage disposal!

(and I don't appreciate those junk key's/values that trial-ware leaves either)

Hey everyone, anyone that wants to easily edit their statup and dont have the msconfig option... download a program called "Startup Control panel 2.7 by Mike Lin" I't works very well.
