    Post Useful Startup Information

    I was curious about what some of the things running at startup were on my PC, and found this useful resource. Figured maybe it would help someone else too.

    http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_index.htm

    Useful, exhaustive list of possible startups, what they do, what installed them and whether they are necessary for your system to run. Also identifies possible spyware as well.

    Good post Keisha, another thing you could do is boot into Windows (if you use it), go to the Run menu and type in msconfig, it gives yoyu a listing of your Win.ini, System.ini, and config.sys files which lists pretty much every process/service you have running.... A good program for this is StartUp Cop
