    I am very new to win xp after having been using Win 98 forever it seems. In Win 98 when I wanted to take a program off the startup list, I'd go to Systems information, click on tools and find the startup list and do what I had to do. I don't see that here in XP! I have a program that I don't want to startup automatically. I don't see it in the Adminstrative tools/services where I can enable or disable a program such as messenger! Where is the Win XP startup group?
    Thank you
