    Ive seen this program before but i cant find it anymore..

    basically it restores your default startup programs back to the way it was when you first got your computer - so i dont have like 50 things trying to start up when the copmuter reboots.

    thanks!

    msconfig ? . . click Start . .Run . . type msconfig . . click on startup tab to uncheck anything you do not want running at startup.

    Maybe your thinking of OEM recovery disks that restore the computer to factory settings?

    no, ya know when you press CTRL + ALT + DELETE and see the running processes? basically the stuff you dont know if you can quit running or not, it restores it so only what it needs to run is going..
