    Can someone please look at this file from Hijackthis and tell me what start-up processes I can stop in my system config using msconfig or in my registry please. The PC seems to be taking longer and longer to boot since all these items run/boot at start up.

    This is a startup list that is part of the features in Hijack as an optional log. I'm trying to determine what I can kill at boot time to free up resources on my Mothers PC. She has all kinds of stuff running at start-up and it takes forever to boot. ??

    Can someone help me please?

    Make sure you have the most current version of HijackThis, which is 1.99.0, then run a scan and save the log and post the entire contents here. Just use the "Scan" and "Save Log" functions and nothing else.

    If you want to review your list of running processes in the MSCONFIG "Startup" tab, the search option at this site will be a big help to you.

    Other than

    ScanRegistry

    SystemTray

    Antivirus program entries

    Firewall program entries


    Windows 98SE needs very few other programs to be running in the background.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Besides trimming down the startup load, get rid of the buildup of temp files in that computer. Go to "Find - Files And Folders", select the hard drive to look in, then delete everything that appears under:

    *.TMP

    C:\TEMP\*.*

    C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\*.*


    Don't be surprised if you see hundreds of those files appear. Get rid of them all.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Please be patient and don't expect a reply within a few minutes. You're not the only one out there asking for help. We volunteer our time and don't get paid for this.
