Hello All,

While the Startup tab in MSConfig makes total sense to me, the options under Services do not. By selecting or unselecting an application under Services what exactly am I doing? :thumbsup:

Thanks!

You will kill that application. Msconfig is a tool used for testing. If you want something to stop items in the long term, you'd be better off using Microsoft's Autoruns or Codestuff Starter Which is a little more user-friendly

Well, not exactly kill the application, but when you uncheck a service in MSconfig, it sets it to disabled so it wont start on next reboot.
