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

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!
