What is the msconfig option


Whenever I startup my PC and go directly to task manager there are lots of programs running that have not been opened and are not visible as running on my PC. I have checked the startup menu and there is nothing in the startup and I have checked the schedular and the only task scheduled to run is the anti virus protection update. All these programs are chewing up memory time and you have to go through them and end task before the PC will let you open anything.

What you need to do is go to the run program type in msconfig click on the button that says boot.ini click on the programs that you want running when you start your pc
