Thanks. Its Works WP.

MSCONFIG shows about 30 programmes, a few I recognise but a lot I don't. Some are NvCpl; nwiz; NvMcTray; wkfud; WksSb; WkUFind; CAgent; InCD; realsched; ashDisp; ADeck; gsasServ; tsl2; FlashKsk; Scrtkfg; winampa; Opware12; E_S4IOH2; REGSHAVE; zlclient;ctfmon; msmsgs.

Are any of them essential or can I untick the lot?

NvCpl; nwiz May be Norton AV. If you Have MS Office Fast find remove the tick. Norton is a Resource hogg
