MSCONFIG - Normal OR Selective Startup?
by Harv - 8/23/04 11:31 PM
Before I had my H/D reformatted, I was able to choose the Selective Startup option under Startup Selection in msconfig. Now, the setting won't stay and will revert back to Normal Startup after I restart my pc. On a few occasions, I was able to get the Selective Startup option to remain, BUT the check mark next to Load Startup Items would disappear each time after rebooting.
I have only three Startup Items under "Startup": APVXDWIN (Panda AV), zlclient (Zone Alarm Pro), and tca (The Cleaner). Am I correct to assume that I should have the radio button next to Selective Startup checked rather than Normal Startup? I notice that machine boot up time is much longer with the Normal Startup option.
