Is there a WinXP Boot Sequencer Watcher?

I have this program that loads during Windows Boot that I want to identify.
It shows up in my task bar for a few seconds, it's un-named and then it goes
away.
It could be nothing, but again....

I'm looking for an application that will stop each program that loads and
let me see what it is before it loads.

Dreaming?

Thanks,
Bill

Don't know anything like that, but msconfig and msinfo32 can show you the
startup applications.

Have you tried a logged boot?
