As i understand it this one is used when connecting some sort of apple device to the comp, however i so seldom connect my iphone that i think i can start it manually. However, i have failed to locate what it is that launches it. I have checked startup entries and services using CodeStuff Starter and i even searched the registry for the phrase. Everything else apple-related is disabled. How do i stop it from adding seconds to my boot time?
Has something to do with modems, probably communicating with one, however my comp is connected to a switch, con. to a router, then theres the modem, so i dont see how it is required. can i disable it?
Also, what is the difference between a service set to Disabled and one set to Manual?
Lastly, when i boot my comp it takes about 10-20 seconds for it to get from the stage where you have the white little DOS cursor blinking on the screen to asking me if i want to boot xp normally or reset to default configuration (it does this because i used msconfig, id like it if i could bypass this step to). I hear the cd/dvd drive spin, and it takes long if theres a cd in it, so im guessing that it checks the cd first for boot info and then checks the hdd. I would prefer if it didnt, since if i want to boot from a cd ill just tap f2 at the appropriate screen.
Thank you in advance!
