    Ok all you wonderful folks. I have used this forum in the past and have received marvelous help. I have Windows XP and there are apparently a lot of programs starting up that don't need to be. (I remember when I had another version of Windows that allowed me to see what the heck was running in the background easier than the XP does--make sense?). Anyway, I think that I'm having too many programs starting up and running in the background that don't need to be. I am sure that this has been asked on this forum a bazillion times, and I've searched but I can't seem to find the answer to my question. How do I stop all of these programs from running in the background?

    I can't seem to find my HJT program either.....so I can't post whats going on.

    Thanks ya'll !

    I use Spybot's "advanced options" to get rid of a lot of that stuff, myself.
