    I wish to remove a program from the startup, but do not want to delete the program. How can I do this easily? With 98there was a simple command, but it won't wok with 2000.

    Thanks

    You could install msconfig in win 2k and simply disable it under the startup tab.

    http://www2.whidbey.net/djdenham/Msconfig.htm

    Alternately, you could delete the registry entry for it. Most startups are located in

    Hkey_Local_Machine\software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RUN

    some will be in the RunServices key.

    You can delete an entry in the Right hand pane by right clicking onit and deleting it.

    I would strongly encourage you to use msconfig though.

    ... and welcome to TSG...
