After log-in I look in task manager & see all kinds of apps running. Where
do I go to stop this stuff from loading at start-up?

Also, how do I log on as administrator?

I try to get HELP but Explorer never loads the docs.

AHHH, Help.

On the Start/Run line type: msconfig When that opens click the Startup
tab to see what all is being loaded each time you boot.

Boot into Safe Mode as one method. If you only see one name on the Welcome
screen that most likely you are the system administrator.

Hi;

Why do you think you need to run that? That are probably better options
available for most issues.

I can't say what other options you may have until I know why you want to run
SFC. What is the problem you are trying to correct?
