What does 'Run' do?

  The Earl Of Sabden 22:25 16 Jun 2004

Hi guy's.
I'm looking for commands to type in 'Run' so I can learn what's in the computer.

I know about msconfig and sfc /scannow etc, but I need to learn a lot more.

Anyone know of a list of commands and what they mean etc..... Thanks, EOS

gets into the nitty gritty things that run on your computer were you can manually switch some of them off without any side affects as they are processes that are not needed on most computers.
there is a thread somewhere which tells you which are safe to fiddle with so may be somebody can redirect you to it

also dxdiag. this tells you all about direct x and associated programs that are for gaming and such like and tell you what version of direct x you have

make sure to do a restore point BEFORE you go messing about with your settings.............TT

DONT just type CMD.

Type: cmd /k thenthecommandhere

saves you about 0.75 seconds.
