Here is a copy of my start up programs.
Os is XP, 3.2ghz,
I sure could use some help in finding out which programs I could uncheck so they are not running.
I only want programs running that I have to have, I know some of programs I could start manual which is fine.
My old pc OS 98se I know which ones to uncheck, but now I have this new pc with XP and I am not sure which ones to uncheck.
Thank you for any help

Start/Run type msconfig then start up,look at the things ticked,are there any you dont need? if you are not sure leave them but otherwise untick them,I cant find a source for what you definitely need running,maybe some will come along and tell us

there are two web sites which I know provide this info
you can find a list of startup programs here

http://www.windowsstartup.com/wso/index.php
http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_content.php

scroll down until you find

All items - on-line database displaying all programs, recommendations and descriptions
Full-list ZIP - off-line page showing all items in one table - also includes a search facility. Includes a cascading style sheet (startups.css) that allows the page to be displayed the same off-line as the on-line version. Extract all files to the same directory
Start_ups.exe - self-executable file with in-built browser and search capabilities
Short-list - simple list without search facility for search engine cache purposes

click on full-list.zip - heres a direct link
http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_pages/startups_all.zip

open the zip file and open the htm file
now you have a list of everything that maybe running and what this program does and if its needed or not. It takes a while but is well worth the effort
