First of all, I used to have windows 98 for ever and now have 2005 Media XP. I like the new operationg system, but I am not able to check what load-up groups I want for startup. For example, In 98 I was able to go to Acessories>System Information> and under a file above>System Configuration: There I was able to decide if autoexec.bat, config.sys, win.ini would load and could also pick the startup items I wanted to load as well. This was a cool option and let my computer run with incrediable quickness. I was using about 5% of the memory in the computer which was under a gig. I would like to be able to do something similar on XP. I notice there are like 37 process which a running all the time and would like to have as least a possible. Is there anyhting I can do.

To disable items from starting up:

Start -> Run -> type msconfig -> Startup Tab

From here you can select on whats starts up or not. Hope that this helps.
