Some programs start automatically when I turn on my computer and I would like to stop them. I went into MSCONFIG, STARTUP and unchecked those programs and clicked on APPLY. When I started my computer the next time, it tells me that I do not have my computer set on NORMAL Startup so I click on NORMAL and those programs re-start again. What am I suppose to do, leave it on SELECTIVE STARTUP and will I get this message everytime I start my computer? I would appreciate any help. Thank you.

select what you dont want and then when you restart it will give you a message, tick the option it gives you.

leave on the selective startup and tick the box "do not show this message.. "

Think about it.

A 'normal' start up is when nothing has been changed and you allow everything to run in the background, as per normal.

A 'selective' start up is just that - you are being selective in what you want to start or not.

Try it again and when asked if you want a selective start up, click OK.
