I know that this was available in Win98 and also in WinXP, and that for whatever reason it was not available in Win2k. How can I stop the varioous processes from running at startup in Win2K the way msconfig allows me to in WinXP?

download X-Setup from http://www.xteq.com

there is an entry for the startup programs

or, you can go straight into the registry for it...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

of course, be careful when mucking about in the registry, cuz there's no undo button...

You can copy the msconfig.exe from an XP machine to the Winnt\system32 directory and just run it normally from start, run, msconfig. It's worked fine for me on many machines with Win2K. Makes killing spyware much easier.
