    Can somebody please tell me how to access the startup list in Windows 2000, I need to try and speed up the boot.
    There seems to be no msconfig.

    If you mean the list of programs started at boot time then they are in the startup folder on the start menu and in the following registry keys:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    Thanks coderitr, but thats not what I'm after. I want to access all the files at start up, as I used to do in Win98 by going to" run" then typing msconfig.

    Welcome and one more thing which i just thought of. Drag the desktop icon and drop it on the start button to put msconfig in the startup folder as well.
