    I'm new to this forum and to computers(6 mos.). The question I have has probably been asked and answered many times. I've added and deleted many programs since getting this computer and started running out of memory. I added STARTUP COP which helped but I still have items running at startup and have no idea whether they are necessary or what the h*ll thay are. I'm using ME w/256DDR. Can someone direct me to a way to decipher what I can SAFELY eliminate from sartup. Is there a site that explains what these " THINGS " are?

    Here's a great site: <A HREF="http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_content.htm">startup_content</A>

    There's an alphabetic index at the bottom.

    When in doubt, post here! :)

    Good luck,
