You can go to Start / Programs / Accessories / System Tools / System Information

Once there go to Software environment / Startup Programs

Click on Startup Programs once - and all the programs you'd see in MSCONFIG will be in the right pane.

Click Edit / Select All / Edit / Copy and you have them all.

Come back to your post here and:

ATnotes Startup Group "C:\Program Files\ATnotes\ATnotes.exe"
Acrobat Assistant Startup Group "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 5.0\Distillr\AcroTray.exe"
ScanRegistry Registry (Machine Run) C:\WINDOWS\scanregw.exe /autorun
SystemTray Registry (Machine Run) SysTray.Exe
Tweak UI Registry (Machine Run) RUNDLL32.EXE TWEAKUI.CPL,TweakMeUp
NetMouse Registry (Machine Run) C:\NETPRO95\gmnet.exe
TaskMonitor Registry (Machine Run) C:\WINDOWS\taskmon.exe
F-STOPW.EXE Registry (Machine Run) C:\Program Files\FSI\F-Prot\F-STOPW.EXE
FRISK FP-Scheduler Registry (Machine Run) C:\Program Files\FSI\F-Prot\F-Sched.exe
Pop-Up Stopper Registry (Machine Run) "C:\PROGRAM FILES\POP-UP STOPPER\DPPS2.EXE"
AlertService Registry (Machine Run) C:\Program Files\ComputerAssociates\ARCserve\Alert\Alert.EXE
NDPS Registry (Machine Service) C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\dpmw32.exe

right click once in the field and Paste.

OK?

PS: One thing, when you copy and paste this it will look all jumbled and out of place till you post it and magically, it will appear orderly in the thread.

PPS: Just noticed it's your first post, welcome to the best board anywhere.

Is there any thing dodgy in the start up list?.kwyll.
This Private Message answer will exceed the character limit of the board so I'm posting it on the thread for you.
____________________________________________

In the Running processes list are:
WinCinema Manager is needed when using the WinDVD Remote Control for WinDVD from Intervideo. It doesn't need to be in the autostart taking up resources. If you need to use it you can via Start / Programs.

WMIEXE.EXE is not really necessary and adds time to the boot process but it is a Microsoft file, not dangerous. It's a strange file though since it doesn't load on many machines and has no load by an ini file or registry entry.

MRUBLASTER.EXE This you must have added yourself. It's a program to give you privacy on the internet. It doesn't make much sense unless you really have something to hide since it will slow down page loads because all your cache is flushed, history deleted, cookies deleted, etc. Having said that, I haven't used it but I understand there may be settings you can adjust. There are enough problems with it that it has it's own forum:
http://www.wilderssecurity.com/index.php?board=33

TAPIsrv.exe would appear to be an executable program that is being executed upon the launch of AOL. This application being launched (which would probably account for some type of disk access) is associated with a Telephony messaging Application Programming Interface.

I only come to that conclusion because I did think it was associated with Windows ME but then I'm no expert on ME.

SLLIGHTS.EXE System Tray icon for modems based on SGS-Thomson Microelectronics’ chipsets (also called STMicroelectronics). This chipset seems to be used mainly in AMR or USB modems. The System Tray icon is installed during the modem driver installation. It enables the end-user to turn ON or OFF features such as the modem speaker, and other minor settings.
Recommendation :
Some users have reported crashes and lockups (freezes) caused by this task, so you may want to disable it with Startup Manager.

DAP.EXE I think this is another one you may have loaded to boost your surfing speed, most of which don't work. there were references to it being added by one of those rotten self installing toolbars that take over assigning home pages and other delightful things. I just don't know.

In the following list you have 2 entries:
MRU-Blaster Scheduler.lnk = C:\Program Files\MRU-Blaster\scheduler.exe
MRU-Blaster Silent Clean.lnk = C:\Program Files\MRU-Blaster\mrublaster.exe

Again, if you want it fine but you'll notice it's on a schedule which means it may be robbing you of power / speed when you least want that and it's apparently set to run silently or in the background.

Having never used it I can't tell you how many resources this thing uses, what delays it cause or much else.

PCHealth Scheduler, too much to write but if you do a Google search you'll find a ton of info. Most not anything I'd what on my machine but then that may be one reason ME was a bust. Sorry.

To sum up I didn't see any virus, spyware or other major problems but you do have a lot (at least for me who likes a clean machine) of stuff running in the background that may not be helping your puter do it's job smoothly.

If you didn't install it yourself or thought it might speed things up or protect you then you'll have too judge whether it's worth the trade off in performance.

Hope that helps.

It's one of those interesting questions. I renamed mine months ago because I was sick of the wait while my hourglass spun on boot. I've had no problems on 2 machines running Win98SE.

But read this from a tech report:

Microsoft’s Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). Windows Management Instrumentation provides a standard Windows programming method of accessing system information, performance information, event monitors, and application monitors. Thus, for instance, if you wanted to write a product which detailed which hard disks your PC has, their capacity, manufacturer, and other miscellaneous information, you could use WMI scripting to retrieve the information from your PC. In fact you could use WMI for something as simple as finding how much spare hard disk space you have. WMI is an essential component of Windows from Windows 98 SE and Windows 2000 onward. In Windows 98/ME WMIEXE is a transparent task visible only through Starter.

Recommendation :
Leave this task alone. If you are experiencing errors which mention WMIEXE, then your problem is not strictly with WMIEXE, but with something else on your PC

I'd run a spyware checker if I were you, like "Spybot - Search and Destroy". If I remember correctly, Download Accellerator Pro installs some pieces of spyware along with it.

Click here to go to download it

There are others, but I use this one myself after it was recommended here.

Sure, sorry I should have mentioned that.

Shutdown to "Restart in MSDOS mode"

You'll be at C:\windows>

type CD system and hit enter

you'll be at C:\windows\system>

type rename wmiexe.exe wmiexe.old hit enter

hit ctrl Alt Del to re-boot.

If you have any problems you can boot straight to DOS by pressing F8 during the next boot at the 1st beep and you'll get a selection of start ups one of which is boot to DOS where you can go back to C:\windows\system> and rename it back to the original.

You get back to C:\windows\system> by typing CD Windows at the C:\> prompt and then CD system at the C:\windows> prompt.

Small world isn't it. I haven't been there in ages but Port Orchard's OK. Did that stop the hourglass from spinning once Windows loaded?
