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.

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...
