Hi all I made changes to the start up menu on MSCONFIG But it seems these settings keep resetting themselves. Doesnt seem to all just a few like aol software and msn messenger. Any ideas?

Did you click on Apply before OK-ing the changes?

try this as an alternative to msconfig for start up

i also recently had an issue where the program (once ran again) appeared in start up,i had to google it to find the solution and make changes within the program for it not to reappear.

they are made in such a way to over write any msconfig changes, they make there software a startup requirement whether you are intending using it or not, like the ms office
if you are doing the changes in both the SERVICES and the STARTUP as well as the registry that should stop them better,
but each time you get an update from either AOL or MSN, the changes you make will be over written again.
try start up control panel from here but remember to back up your registry first.
