Need help to change the Autoexec

I need help. I need to either re-instruct (I guess that's what you call it)
so it won't take so long to come up. It seem like it took forever to finish
running the program before I finally get the screen with icon. Can anyone
help me?

it just take a long time to come up once you turn the computer on. On the
Win 98, I can go in and change the Autoexe and other program but I can't
seem to do it with the 2000

Application startup at logon is handled quite differently with Windows 2000.
Natively you can; Start\Settings\Control Panel\Administrative Tools\Computer
Management(Local)\System Information\Software Environment\Startup
Programs|View|Advanced, then in the "Location" column, you'll find the path
to the "Startup" location either in the "Startup" directories or from the
registry's "Run" keys. (note that this window is read-only so you must
manually navigate to the location below to edit or otherwise delete)

%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
%USERPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

You can delete the shortcuts that you no longer want to run.


HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

You can delete the string value for the program you no longer want to run.

or copy msconfig from Windows XP to the "windows" directory or AutoRuns for
Windows from Windows Sysinternals

Adding RAM may be the single most effective thing you can do as far as
performance goes.
