    I am used to Windows 98 and XP where you remove tray icons by going to "run" and typing in "msconfig" and click on the "startup" tab and unclicking the programs you don't want running at startup.

    This doesn't work with Windows 2000 or NT. Does anyone know how I accomplish this on Windows 2000?

    Hi,
    I wanted to use msconfig for win2k and did search on google. I used this website to download msconfig.exe and followed the instruction. It worked smoothly. The websites from the previous post have the same idea. Use whatever you prefer, just make sure you save the file in the right folder. good luck

    I have never heard of actually downloading msconfig, but on my Win2k machines, I use Startup CPL (download from http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml). It works really well and is easier to follow than msconfig (it has icons).
