Hello, I have an HP OmniBook 4150 With Windows 2000 Professional. It runs well. However it takes at LEAST 5 min. for it to start up. How do I disable all the program start ups? I am unable to access the start up menu by running msconfig. Thanks

Hi coffee5!

Lets take a look at what is starting up when your computer does. Please download HiJackThis (from the link in my signature) Install it, and double-click on the HiJackThis.exe icon. On the first screen click on Open the Misc Tools Section...on the next screen, click on the Generate StartupList log button and post a copy of the log here. You need not check either of the boxes next to this button.

I'll do that in a few. I was able to disable some of the start up programs using a download from tune-up.com However, it still takes several minutes to start. Hopefully the HiJack will find the problem.
