Natively you can; Start\Settings\Control Panel\Administrative Tools\Computer
Management(Local)\System Information\Software Environment\Startup
Programs|View|Advanced, then in the "Location" column, you'll find the path
to the "Startup" location either in the "Startup" directories or from the
registry's "Run" keys.

%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
%USERPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

You can delete the shortcuts that you no longer want to run.


HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

You can delete the string value for the program you no longer want to run.

or copy msconfig from Windows XP

OK, thanks for the information, however, you wrote:

I copy msconfig from windows xp, where do I get it, the cd?
how do find it on the cd (some files as you know are
in "cabinets"and can't be accessed)?

just curious, why doesn't msconfig run on my 2K version?
Symantec always wants you to use it and I never can get
it to work.....

thank you in advance!

tried right click, left click, top menu, there is no
delete.

It doesn't run because it isn't included with Windows 2000. You can expand a
copy from your Windows XP CD-Rom

expand D:\i386\msconfig.ex_ %windir%\msconfig.exe

would place a copy in your windows directory.
