I am sorting some probs on a neighbours pc which is running win2k pro. Is there an equivalent to msconfig on xp that I could use to find what is running at startup? win 2k is like a foreign country to me similar to xp but lots different. As usual any suggestions gratefully received.

No in short, taskmgr and computer admin take care of things in 2000....However, you could download msconfig.exe and place it in the win32 folder, then run it the same as you did before. Be careful to put it in the right place though:

And follow the instructions.

thanks crosstrainer but your link does not open. Is there a free prog that can show the running items in 2k?

Don't know why the link won't work for you...Works here:

But if you just want to see whats running, use taskmanager.

I find this very useful and easy to use, I have it on my XP machine but it says it works with win 2000. It's worth a try.
