When my machine (XP 2.0 Gig and 512RAM) starts all my programs launch right away without any problems excpet for 1 of them. This programs launchs about 20 seconds later and I would like to have it launch with the others.

The program is;

C:\Program Files\Toshiba\ConfigFree\NDSTray.exe

i.e. My Ethernet cards software.

Is there a Reg. setting I can change or something else I'm missing to make this program boot with the others?

Thanks in advance!

How many programs are we talking about?

The funny thing about single processor computers, no matter how fast the processor is it can only do one thing at a time....

I keep my Startups at a minimum. I have 8 progs selected for startup via MSconfig (Zero in the startup folder) of those eight, 6 load into the tray. At start up I have 28 Processes running.

It doesn't seem to an issue of speed or memory. It's just a long pause. What happens is I''ll boot up and everything will load just like normal at this point I full access to progs without any hesitation at all, but then about 20-30 secs later this last prog will load.

Any ideas?

If you are using cable or DSL it may be negotiating the signal and not allowing the software to startup until the signal is established. Ever try disabling it? The less stuff you have starting up the better...

Well, I use a cable and other TCP/ip connections prob. 50% of the time so disabling it is't an option. It has that delay regardless of the connection type.

I wish it was that easy though...
