1) Open msconfig and put a tick in "Normal Startup". Then reboot.
2) DO NOT use msconfig to make changes to startup items. Always use a dedicated app (such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Manager) to manage startup items or services.msc to change system services. Msconfig is a diagnostic utility only.

Either one is fine for managing startup programs (Startup Control Panel is easier in my opinion). WinPatrol has a lot more features and can be run resident to notify you when an app tries to install a startup item. I actually use both (WinPatrol resident in the background and SCP for managing startup items).

Thanks again Allan for sharing your experienced thoughts.

My machines are running fine.........did a few software installs & uninstalls using Revo.....is it possible to manually delete obsolete/unused registry entries vs a reg cleaner like CC or Eusing etc.
