I have windows 98 on my computer and need help on something.
How do I limit the number of programs which are loaded when u start up the computer.
You know when u start your computer, the program icons which appear on the lower right hand corner of the tool bar. I have way too many programs being loaded and it makes start up really slow.


Please help!!!

Simplest way:

1. From the Start menu
2. Run C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MSCONFIG.EXE
3. Goto Startup tab
4. uncheck the applications you want to prevent from starting
5. After you reboot a warning will popup, click the 'dont show me again' box and you will be ready to go.

another way...

or you can dl this program, its free. the good thing about it is that when you remove program it goes in to a temporary deleted section so in case you want on program to start-up everytime you could do that, and its small. here's the link

Its the usual way that I solved problems when I had win98 on my system. Then I had millenium. It sucked big time. Running win2k right now. Its the best thing that microsoft has come up with.
