can anyone advise me how i can bring up the list of all programs that start on start up and how i can remove/delete those that are not req'd.
i have a p3 450mhz w98 system and it seems to be taking ages to get to the desk top screen when i switch it on. i've been advised it could be due to all the programs loading on start up.
thanking you all in advance for your assistance.

Spikeychris thanks for your assistance.
The link you provided helped me clean up my start up and now my resource is 88% free, up from 59%.
I'm well chuffed.
