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.)

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