    I'm trying to find the START>RUN command that allows me to configure startup
    options for Microsoft and non-Microsoft programs. I've been on WinXP Help
    and searched for startup configurations etc. and I'm given the typical F8
    search options etc. What is this program's name?
    I'm attempting to free up some resources so the system runs faster. It was
    my son's at college and their a bunch of unneeded programs starting up so I'm
    in the process of classifying and removing them at startup to free some RAM.
    Other ideas also appreciated - like easily cross identifying the programs
    that DO start with the executable/process name without doing a Google or MSN
    search all the time.
    TIA
