    When I boot up my computer, my startup items are not always starting up. I have checked the settings in msconfig and the ones that are checked are still not starting up. Any ideas why and what can I do to remedy the problem. I am running XP Home sp2.

    Welcome to TSG....

    Have you been shutting down any start-up processes on your computer?

    Yes, I have unchecked some programs to start on startup. Why would that be an issue?

    Did the programs that you want to start up start up before.
