In W98 you could use MSCONFIG.EXE to disable startup applications at will.  How do you controll that with Windows 2000?  (Forcing off things such as RealPlayer, Virus Scan Stuff, etc.)

Can't you delete the shortcuts from the Startup folder?

huben: Not all items which start on startup are in the Startup folder--there are several Registry keys where you can set startup items.
