To Get StartupList:
  • Please download StartupList to your desktop.
  • Double click the startuplist.zip to extract the files inside.
  • When the new window opens, please double click on StartupList.exe
  • A window will open that will begin listing all of the startups with icons and text. In the lower left hand corner, it will show the status. When it says "ready" in the bottom left corner, it has finished running.
  • At the top of the window, click File>Save As and save startuplist.txt to your desktop.
  • Close startuplist.exe window
  • Post a copy of startuplist.txt in your next reply

hi starjax, i really appreciate your help. i did what you said to do and it saved everything to notepad. it is very long. is that what you want me to post. is it supposed to be several pages long, because it is. let me know if this is the right thing because i am concerned about the length of it.

hi starjax, thanks again. i will attach the startup list. don't be surprised if the attachment occurs twice. i was looking at the attachments and another screen popped up so i don't know what happened. but here it is again.
