    Hello,dmcneela

    Try this go to start then Run & type msconfig

    go to startup tab & uncheck the ones you do not

    need & also if you like see if your progs have an

    option to keep from startup

    Good Luck

    Hey,dmcneela

    Give this a try




    Go to: Start/Settings/Control Panel/Multimedia/Multimedia Properties/Audio/ near the bottom, check the box that says, "Show volume control on the taskbar".

    hope this helps
