    I am attempting to clean up a few things that have gathered over the years on my computer. One of them is the number of things that load automatically at startup. It just seems like a lot of stuff to use up system resources but perhaps all of them are worthwhile. I would appreciate advice on what, if any, items should be removed. I am familiar with the use of msconfig to accomplish this though there may be a better way that could be used. The following is my startup list generated using Hijack This. My thanks in advance.

    All you need to run windows 98 is
    explorer and systray.

    Everything else is extra and unnecessary.
    You may want to keep the processes for the antivirus running.

    I won't go through your hijack jog because I hate that program.

    This link
    http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_pages/startup_full.htm
    will tell you what all your start up items are and whether it's safe to delete them. If you click on the individual letters you'll get descriptions of what they are.
    Anti virus
    firewalls
    sys tray
    explorer
    is all you 'safely' need.
    You may have something that you like starting up though.

    Click Start - Run, type in MSCONFIG, then click OK - Startup(tab).

    "ScanRegistry", "SystemTray", and "Norton" should all remain checked and enabled. You can probably uncheck and disable the rest of them. If your scanner starts giving you trouble, recheck "Stimon".

    Check out the Pac's Portal link that was given to you. It will explain each item in your startup list in detail.

    Your computer will indeed run better with its startup load trimmed down. (y)
