Hi there,
just now i decided to erase some start-up items that i didn't need by 'Start, Run, Msconfig.exe' and unticked a few items: AOlsp scheduler+Aoldial(i dont use Aol anymore), Bullguard(dont use), Nerocheck(not sure if i need this?), qttask(Personal Computer World said this was a Apple Quicktime update?), jusched(Sun Java update checker) and Totrec sched(Total Recorder scheduler)',then i unticked the following items in 'Services': Bullguard Liveupdate, BullguardMain Service, Bullguard file monitoring, Bullguard Firewall service, Bullguard email monitoring, Error reporting services!!
My problem is that everytime i restart my Laptop i now get the following message: 'You have used the System Configuration Utility to make changes to the way Windows starts. The System Configuration Utility is currently in diagnostic or selective startup mode, causing this message to be displayed and the utility to run every time Windows starts-choose the normal startup mode on the General tab to start Windows normally and undo the changes you made using the System Configuration Utility'
Have i done anything wrong? What shall i do?
All answers will be greatly appreciated- Thankyou-Craig

Just click on the box - "Don't show this window again". Or words to that effect, I can't remember exactly.

On the old XP pop-up there was a box to tick but don't know if there is with Vista. You could try right click the Message

You have asked the same question three times now, and the answers given by Technotiger and woodchip are still the same

  buel 06:14 20 Jul 2008

Yes, obviously i realise that i have two answers but i posted the question again but stating that i have XP and not Vista (in case this makes a difference to their answers!) and i wanted any other potential answers so i posted the question again- Just because i had two answers doesn't neccesarily mean thet they are the correct answers does it?

"What should I do?"
Undo the changes which you have made and use a start-up utility as €dstowe suggests (personally I prefer WinPatrol but they do much the same job)which will allow you to disable rather than erase anything in your start-up programs.
If you are having difficulty in understanding the messages which are being flagged up then you most certainly should not be "erasing" anything.
.... and just as an aside ... nobody on this forum pretends to "know all about all",(least of all me), but to imply that the advice which you are being offered is "incorrect" is unlikely to help you in your quest for assistance.
These folks are only trying to help YOU after all!

Thankyou for your help, i must point out that one of my answers was "Just click on the box - "Don't show this window again". Or words to that effect, I can't remember exactly." so that is why i posted again, surely there was no harm in getting someone to verify what Technotiger posted, being as he couldn't remember exactly?
