How do I manually edit the programs which Windows 98 loads upon startup?

I remember doing it once, years ago, but I can't remember how I did it.

I don't recall for certain. You might try: Run>sysedit and see what pops up. I'm digging through my favorites for a website that has lots of win98 tips and tricks. When I find it I will edit this post to provide a link.

Yes, what Greg said about msconfig was what I couldn't remember.

1. Right-click the item on the Taskbar (if there is one) and look for a Startup option that you can switch Off.
2. Look in the programs Options for a similar Option. You may need to look in all the options.
3. Try MSConfig (Select Start • Run. Type in MSCONFIG, and press Enter. Click on the Startup tab)
