    I had been trying to get rid of some of the junk that loads on startup on my Father's PC. When I go to Start/Run/msconfig
    and the Starup Tab I uncheck the stuff I don't want to run. THen when I reboot it says I am using a selective start up (or sometheng similar).
    Sure enought I go back to msconfig and selective starup is checked. If I click Normal Startup, it re-enbables all the other junk again.

    Can anyone tell me what is going on?

    Thanks
    John

    Hi John,
    Its pretty simple.

    Selective Startup - The customized startup which you selected manually!

    Normal Startup - Default startup.

    So if you say NO to selective startup then ofcourse the Normal startup will load and with it all the extra, unnecessary programs ;)

    Select the 'Selective Startup' and things should be fine.


    Hope this is clear!

    Np John.

    Yeah I guess so...I'm not sure if I've seen that Selective Startup Alert Message in Windows 98, but ofcourse have seen it in Windows ME. May be its a new feature!
