    I'm running Home XP. When I click on START then click on all programs then click on Startup it displays the following:
    Adobe Gama Loader.exe
    Camio Viewer 2000
    Microsoft Office
    Do I need these programs in my startup?

    Click the link below and read the article, "MSCONFIG - Reduce Your Startup Load". The site is geared towards 95 and 98 users, but the information in the article also applies to XP. (y)

    With XP, you have 2 ways of reducing your startup load and shortening the boot time:

    Disabling as many items as possible in the MSCONFIG startup tab by unchecking them.

    Changing as many items as possible in the SERVICES list from "automatic" to "manual" or "disabled".
