Yeah, just delete any programs that are in the Startup folder.

MSCONFIG(win98) worked on early versions of W2k but your best bet is to get MSCONFIG for WinXP.

I have Win2KPro and use MSCONFIG for WinXP-works just fine.

I dont think W2K has MSCONFIG built-in that is why it is a seperate download from another OS. Go with MSCONFIG for WinXP.

Dont forget to put it in c:\winnt\system32
