    I recently hit upon the idea of lessening the amount of programs that open at startup. It was suggested here that I use msconfig on my XP system to keep some programs from opening. I now get a notification that I have used msconfig and that I should restore the system to it's prior settings, which I have done. Here is my startup list. Would someone be kind enough to scan it and tell me if there are items that need to be deleted (i.e. harmful) or that can be removed from startup. How can these things be done without activating the notification again? I should add that I have also been deleting entries that are related to "wildtangent", a game provider that installs alot of spyware on a persons computer.

    Also, what is PS2? I accidently deleted it when I was getting rid of programs related to wild tangent.I guess I haven't tried accessing it yet because I haven't gotten a notice that it is not available. Can I get it back?

    Thanks, Phil

    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner

    u see where it says Owner thats your username, I hope you have a password on that account if not get one or change username that can be a great security risk. Thats what i have read, If you dont believe me google up blackviper and on his site it will tell you. People can hack it becuase its the DEFUALT*

    you dont need

    C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger\MsnMsgr.Exe
    C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe
    C:\Program Files\AWS\WeatherBug\Weather.exe <--looks like spyware to me run ad-aware and spybot links in sig

    Quicken Scheduled Updates.lnk = C:\Program Files\Quicken\bagent.exe
    dont know if you want

    WT GameChannel = C:\Program Files\WildTangent\Apps\GameChannel.exe
    WildTangent CDA = RUNDLL32.exe "C:\Program Files\WildTangent\Apps\CDA\cdaEngine0400.dll",cdaEngineMain

    dont need those thats forsure go to start>search> and search anything that has to do with wildtangent.

    UpdateManager = "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Sonic\Update Manager\sgtray.exe" /r

    TkBellExe = "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot
    i dont think you need to update real either you can always manual update your choice tho.

    Im not 100% sure these are safe so don't take my word as final always do a little research GOOGLE is a friend use IT.

    I hope this helps.

    OK Cris. How do I get rid of these items? Am I deleting them from my computer or just from the start up list? I am three times as old as you are but still brand new. I do want weather bug to open and I want to get totally rid of wild tangent. As for the other items I don't know. Help me out.

    alrite, go to start>run> type msconfig.

    Go to the startup tab and remove the ones that are unneccesary.
    as for wild tangent you should run spybot search and destroy and ad-aware. then reboot after rebooting run hijack this and click on scan then save it and copy the log and paste it here for someone to help you clean it up. Reboot. Make sure you update before scanning. now go to start search and type wild or tangent and delete any of those make sure you double check their directory.

    all the links to what you need are in my signature. Hope its clear if not please reply i will get back to you.

    Instead of typing msconfig in run box, try typing: services.msc this will prevent you from getting the msconfig notification and will also open up your start up list. Check out www.blackviper.com for a complete list of programs and information on the ones that are safe to disable. (y)
