When you look at the Startup tab of msconfig in Windows 98, what file
does that tab correspond to? What is the file that actually contains
this startup information?

Thanks,
Larry

Soem may be from the "Startup" menu accessable through the "Start"
menu or the folder \WINDOWS\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp. Usually,
most are contained in the registry in the various "Run" keys.

The places Win9x uses to load at Startup:

-the load= and run= lines in the win.ini
-the [386Enh] section of the system.ini
-C:\WINDOWS\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp
-C:\Windows\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

-the registry keys
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce\Setup
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx

startup information, msconfig can gather information form all of these, and
probably others, mvp Gary Terhune's
http://www.grystmill.com/articles/cleanboot.htm may contain the information
you need, even if you dont know you need it yet

config.sys
autoexec.bat
win.ini
system.ini
start menu/programs/startup
registry settings both general and user specific in multi user systems
hkey/etcterera ..... /run
ditto ../runonce
and registry settings pertaining only to specific programs that may have
their own startup keys.

http://www.pcmag.com/ 's StartupCop has "undo", and it is more than a
combination of "START, Run, MSInfo32, Software Environment, Startup
Programs" and "START, Run, MSConfig, Startup tab". It can even do a
permanent delete. You may create multiple "profiles" of Startup items.

..........Start.....of a StartupCop help screen.............
Windows loads startup items from three locations in the Registry, two
lines in WIN.INI, and two folders. Observation reveals that it always
loads the seven groups in the same order. Here they are, in order:

1. Registry (Machine Service) - Each value in the Registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
defines a startup item. The value's data string is the command to be
executed at startup.
2. Win.ini (Load=) - The value of the Load= key in the [Windows] section
of WIN.INI consists of one or more startup program names, separated by
semicolons. Neither long filenames nor command-line arguments may be
used. (Windows NT users - see note below)
3. Win.ini (Run=) - The value of the Run= key in the [Windows] section
of WIN.INI consists of one or more startup program names, separated by
semicolons. Neither long filenames nor command-line arguments may be
used. (Windows NT users - see note below)
4. Registry (Machine Run) - Each value in the Registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run defines
a startup item. The value's data string is the command to be executed at
startup.
5. Registry (Per-User Run) - Each value in the Registry key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
defines a startup item. The value's data string is the command to be
executed at startup.
6. Common Startup Group - Each shortcut in the common startup group (by
default, C:\Windows\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup) is launched
at startup. This group does not appear on the Start menu. Some Windows
installations will not have a common startup group.
7. Startup Group - Each shortcut in the Start menu's startup group (by
default, C:\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup) is launched at startup.

Startup Cop displays each item's group number in the Priority column.
Within each group, enabled items are shown first, then disabled items,
and finally items that are ready for removal. The groups load in the
order specified, and enabled items within a group will load in roughly
the order shown, though this may vary. Because the order of the items is
significant, Startup Cop does not permit sorting into different orders
by clicking the column headings.

Thanks or Good Luck,
There may be humor in this post, and,
Naturally, you will not sue,
should things get worse after this,
