I have just bought a new pc running windows xp , and the amount of tasks that run on start up is frightening, does anyone know of a simple programme that can show me what is starting ,and giving me an option to stop or suspend it loading at start up ? Thanks again

Start<run, type msconfig, click ok, under startup tab untick what you don't want to run at startup,good luck..........
