    I have a computer running Windows ME that runs strangely at times. Below is a copy of my startup list and I was hoping someone could take a look at it and see what programs do not need to be running at startup and how I can go about disabling them.

    I can see at least three Spybots on your machine, the 'wcmdmgr' entry, the 'TkBellExe' for RealOne, and the 'WT GameChannel' looks suspicious to me, see the thread here

    Some other things I would look into would be the Creative stuff (for the CD burner) Quick Time, don't need it running all the time, Inkwatch, prints look funny, change the ink! And the ensonic mixer, it turns on when you turn on the sound mixer.

    I'd recommend removing these from startup Found Here

    ================================================================
    ================================================================

    WT GameChannel = C:\Program Files\WildTangent\Apps\GameChannel.exe

    All I could find on this was
    GameChannel.exe and HERE

    ================================================================

    Also you have some auto update stuff you can disable and do manually once a week or month.

    I wouldn't stop at just those items.

    You really have far too much in startup, and you would benefit from trimming down your startup programs.

    Go to Start > Run, type Msconfig.

    On the Startup tab you'll see almost all applications that start up automatically as Windows loads, and they can be disabled right there.

    Some of them however are required, so please don't go wildly unchecking everything in sight.

    Instead, use Pacman's List of Startup Applications to determine what should stay and what can go.

    In case of doubt, don't hesitate to ask.


    Cheers,

    Ditto! Trim down that startup load as much as possible. Your computer will run much better and with many less problems.:D

    Thanks for you information. I am kind of new at this. Could someone give me the commands that I need to remove these items? I would appreciate it!
