    Somehow all my check boxes got disabled

    I remember what was selected for Start-Up, but what do I do concerning Services, System.INI and Win.INI?

    I went and enabled everything there, except for one or two services but I want everything streamlined again...In regards to Startup and Win, what should be checked?

    PROCESSES - BASICS
    You can see what processes are running on your pc by opening the task manager.(Ctrl-Alt-Delete)
    In relation to the Services and StartUp programs the CORE system processes(+ internet access) that need to be running for Windows to function are:
    csrss.exe
    ctfmon.exe (do not disable if u need different languages-quoted from Slimy)
    explorer.exe
    lsass.exe
    services.exe
    smss.exe
    svchost.exe (x4)
    spoolsv.exe (printer...)
    System
    System Idle Process
    Winlogon.exe

    (+your firewall and antivirus programs...)
    if any of the above .exes are named slightly different or are located outside of the system32 folder there is a big likelihood they are viruses.
    ( I have looked at 3 different machines running different services- and these are to my knowledge The Essential Core)

    Everytime i install a program i go and see if autostart is enable and if it is, i just unchecked it. My guess, just check all , restart and see what comes up. After that, the choice is yours on what you want loaded or not loaded.
