msconfig/start up/un-tick all. Need advice

  dagbladet 12:11 07 Sep 2003

One or two responses to slow machine problems, have been to run msconfig, start up, un-tick all the boxes and restart. When I do a normal win xp boot up i usually have about 13 icons on the lower right task bar, some of which i can understand (Norton etc) and others which just irritate me ie.printer status, real player control centre, network cable unplugged (home PC, no network). Is it really ok to un-tick ALL of the boxes ?
Also when I look at the running processes I have something called "Netropa hot key" going, any ideas what this is ? Thanks folks
