I am not sure what you are asking us here. We cannot make any recommendations without seeing what the output is. When I have reviewed by own list of startup applications, I have always begun by deleting those I am positive I do not want to launch when booting (say, for example, Office or any media player) and then proceed to the others.

goto run => type msconfig, then click on the startup tab, then list the applications that are checked. I'm sure between all of us, we can explain what they all are, and if you should uncheck them.

I want to add, that I find it easier to manage start ups by using an application, rather than msconfig. For example, Spybot Search and Destroy, under their "tools" section, has a good system startup manager, that gives a little more information than msconfig, which is more of a diagnostic tool than anything else.

John

Here's a list that tells you what they are.

I am not sure of the credability of this list so be careful and double check before you do anything unless you are sure of what you are doing.

Not unless you know what they are and what they do.
