    Hey i seem to have a problem with my icons in my system tray...during start up some of them dont even load. then i went to msnconfig and i found out that something keeps changing it to Selective Startup with "Load Startup Items" unchecked..i think... then i set it to Normal Startup and the reboot and the icons are all there...does anyone know what is doing this.. i ran all the anti spware programs and antivirus and they picked up some spyware but when i delete them its still the same..

    try the event log, and see what's starting up, that changes it.

    microsoft diagnosis

    might help ?

    you can disable them from loading in msoonfig.

    whenever you use msconfig to disable a program from starting up it changes the mode to selective startup.
    If you cahnge it back to normal startup it's going to make everything startup that you disabled...

    erm...lemme get this straight
    are u saying that everytime u restart ur comp, the msconfig will always go back to Selective Startup? matter how many times u try to put it to Normal Startup?

    in your dreams
    I'd permanently remove items from startup instead of just disabling them via msonfig. Try regcleaner to remove them.

    @ Rossco & backlash:
    He knows what msconfig does but it's not him disabling items in there - he want's to know what is.

    @ trajillo:
    Download and run Hijackthis, scan and save a logfile, then post it here.
