I am running windows me - I have too many useless running program- in order to do scan disk I know to disable them with keyboard. But how do I get rid of them to speed up my computer - I saw one person get somewhere and there was a box with check marks that showed running programs - do you know what I mean?

start/run/type msconfig and press enter, go to the startup tab, this is the list of all programs that load at startup

Hi,

Real Player needs to be stopped from starting up in The options of the program itself: RP/View/Preferences/Start Center/Settings/remove check mark.

DirectCD can be unchecked in Msconfig/Startup and will stay away if you do.

For the others, examine the options.
Often there's a possibility to uncheck 'start up when Wi ndows Start' or something similar.

Good luck,
