    Hope you had a very nice Valentines. My question is this.
    IN my startup list I have ram booster, loadqm.exe, findfast, and other ones that I don't need.
    Can I go into windows explorer or find files and folders and delete these or do I have to just disable them in msconfig, startup, selective.
    I also noticed i have incredimail in my startup twice. Would i just disable one of them.

    Thanks for your help.

    No you certainly don't want to delete them. Just use msconfig to disable them unless they are associated with a program you want to uninstall. Add/Remove programs or the programs own uninstaller should be used for that.

    Find Fast can be disabled through msconfig or by following directions in one of these articles for the version you have.

    Are both incredimail startups checked? If so, I would expect you would need to uncheck both.

    If only one is checked, you need to look for the unchecked one in the Start menu > Programs > disabled startups and remove that. There may also be something in Incredimails program interface that you have to reconfigure to keep it from reinstalling itself there.
