I know a chunk of this stuff is for XP and a few devices, but it sure looks like a lot, compared to Win98-SE.
Some items that may need to be running:
- GeForce4 MMX 440
- USB 2.0 drivers
- ATI TV Wonder capture
- HP multimedia keyboard (HPMMKBD.EXE)
- Office 2000
My StartUP directory is empty. My MSCONFIG Startup is very clean, except for a few neccessary XP OS components. I used AdAware.
My PC loads immediately when I turn it on, but a lot of major Windows components don't activate until a few long minutes later, such as Internet Explorer, DSL Log on, Device Manager, etc.. this only happens one time, that is, the time when the PC is actually powered up.
