In "msconfig" startup, you have disabled items that you didn't need and/or didn't want starting with Windows and want to get rid of them.
Here are 2 solutions to cleanup (remove) those disabled leftovers.
The 1st is a copy/paste "vbs" script solution that works excellent, I use it myself.
The 2nd is a download program. I have used this one as well and also works excellent, but I prefer the 1st.

Great tip! I have at least 10 unchecked startup items from Vista Transformation Pack (it's ugly).

Will this work in Windows 98SE? I ask, because I don't want to mess up my registry or anything....
Microsoft software doesn't get released...
it escapes, leaving a trail of destruction behind it.
