You can click on file, then save. It will save the file by default as autoruns.txt. You can then open it in notepad and print it.

Thanks for the help.

I was able to print out the autoruns list of what's running at start up. I am AMAZED at how much is running. All in all I have 21 pages of items that I'll have to research one by one! Surely there must be an easier way to approach this problem rather than entering each and every file name in the search box of the start up data base. Is there a way to find the minimal number of programs required to run winXP?

If I could do this, then all I'd have to do is stop all the unessessary programes from starting. I have been told that windows really only requires twenty some odd programs to run. Is this a logical action approach or am I missing something that could be detrimental?


Thanks for any help.

I would really focus on the entries listed under the Logon, Appinit, and services tabs when in autoruns.
