Sorry if this is a dumb and stupid question. But i tried to make my computer more effecient. (Bad start). So i went to msconfig and did something with selective startup. Now when I start up 20 program screens pop up really quickly. Easy Cd Creator, Creative Modem, msdll, and a bunch of other stuff I've never heard of. I can eventually close all the screens but my comp won't connect to the internet.

Is there a way to restore standard start up configurations in Msconfig? I've tried to restore to an earlier date...but my comp doesn't seem to have any previous setting saved.

I cannot imagine what you could have done to create this issue....did something....what does that mean? Or don't you know?

It sounds like you did something else, like dumped a bunch of files in your start up folder....since I cannot see your computer it is difficult to figure out what is going on....

I guess a hijackthis log will at least let us take a look at why those programs are running at startup so let's start there.

Hi Toplocker
sorry I can't answer you problem
But please Try this great program for start up information

Startup Inspector

once installed consult the internet and examine the icons then uncheck anything that is not required, it's the safest way to do it yourself
