Hi,
I finally unpacked a brand new HP computer ordered on line 3 years ago distributed through Sam's Club.
I had no room in the home to set it up earlier, as my marriage was at stake, and a 6 WORKSTATION home office network was cluttering my home!! Any way I just hooked up the HP 794c computer with: cpu 3ghz, 1gb ddr ram 266, 250gb hard drive, Nvidia 128 mb video adapter, Tv capTure board, Audigy SB sound card by Creative, 17" lcd monitor, remote KB and Mouse, and a large bundle of preloaded software in this Win XP OS. $1600.00 on sale 5-2003 NEW!! GOOD price then??

Anway, my question has to do with some shaddy entries in the startup tab of the config. manager. I have deleted many, and have googled others and there is no convincing reason to uncheck them, also, or keep them. If you are familiar with just a few left, I would appreciate to get you advice on whether to keep these checked or unchecked and any other thoughts you may have.

Here are the ones: UPDREG, HPSYSDRV, UPDREG, MSASCUI, REGUARD, AND SGTRAY


THANKS VERY MUCH FOR YOUR HELP.

Start by trying to identify the aps in question in our startup listings:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/

Also, Use Startup Inspector to examine and manage startup entries as it identifies the programs they are connected with far better than does msconfig:

Startup Inspector (manages startup menu helps you identify aps in the startup menu so you can disable unnecessary programs from running in the background when they are not needed)

And

Startup Monitor (a small freeware ap available on the same page to notify you and require your permission for any program to add itself to your startup menu)

http://www.windowsstartup.com/download.php

Some of what you listed looks like HP proprietary aps - be careful what you disable and/or uninstall.
