I'm trying to reduce the number of programs that start up when I start my computer. I'm using Windows ME. On the schedule which shows the start up programs I unchecked all (there were many checked) but four. I clicked ok and was advised to restart the computer, which I did. I then looked at the start up programs list and all the ones I had unchecked had the check mark back again. I need to reduce the start up load because it is really slowing down the response time.
