i went to start/run, wrote msconfig and got a box that amongst other things had the startup menu. i unticked a few things i didn't wish to start up everytime i started the pc and hit ok.
the next time i started the pc i get a message saying i should go back to that box and highlight the 'normal mode', which i did.
however that reinstated all the things i originally unticked, so i'm asking do i HAVE to tick the 'normal' after i restart the pc after making changes? if i do, what is the point in being able to untick things?
