    This site among others will give you a good idea how to use msconfig:

    As for those applications you mention, Google them, you will learn what you need and what you don't need. :)

    especially annie, kiraya, moranaki, gulabi, Kozpha, moraramsap, MSLPRINTSEQ, Scicalc all present in win.ini.google search doesnt help much which is why i posted on the forum and started the thread.

    Win.ini is a text format file that can be opened with Notepad. Can you copy and paste its contents here?

    Yes it is normat for msconfig to show a tab for win.ini. And Scicalc along with MSconfig for 16 bit support, fonts, extensions files are normal. I'm not sure about the others. I suspect they are leftover from some old 16-bit game or something.

    My guess after looking is annie, kiraya, moranaki, gulabi, Kozpha and moraramsap are Yahoo Messenger profile names, perhaps those you have chatted with before.

    Everything above (and including) wvx=MPEGVideo are normal win.ini items. And SciCalc is a normal win.ini item. Not sure what MSLPPRINTSEQ is, maybe for a printer.
