    Hi TheEvilDude,
    Go to start, run, type msconfig
    Hit ok
    Click on the startup tab
    Uncheck PC Health, hit apply and ok reboot. That will stop it from running at startup.

    The link below explains what PC Health does in Windows ME. It's up to you if you can live without it. PC Health does add overhead to a PC and can cause it to run slower. But if the PC runs to your satisfaction, then I'd say leave it running. If it's slower than you'd like, try turning if off and see if that helps. Personally, I turn it off on any PCs that I deal with that have ME installed.
