I notice my system is set in msconfig for "Selective Startup". Should it be set on "Normal"?

Not neccessarily. Have you made changes under the startup tab before? If so, this is why it is now saying selective startup. Notice that if you select Normal Startup every entry in the startup tab will be selected and you will have to reconfigure it again.

There is a better and easier to use startup program named Startup Inspector which, unlike msconfig, gives you the ability to tie startup entries to the aps they are for so you can determine what you are disabling. It also doesn't change the default boot configuration as msconfig may do.

Startup Inspector

You might like Startup Monitor (available on the same page) as well. It installs a small ap that requires your apporval for aps to load themselves to your startup menu.
