Loading specific drivers

OS = Win 98 SE
I have a few things on my computer I don't wish to load at start up as I dont use them that often (ie WinFax , Real Player) but I dont want to delete them either.
I used the msconfig to remove them form start up.
I have a Cannon USB digital camera and I would like to incude this in my start up without the others mentioned however,when I start the computer in the customised format the camera isn't recognised and if I power up the camera , the system hangs..
If I restart using the msconfig and check "load all drivers" everything works fine except I now have all that junk to contend with (ie WinFax , Real Player).
Any suggestions as to where I might find / insert a line to load the Cannon drivers without having to load all drivers?

go to start -->run and type msconfig
go to the startup tab, and uncehck those youdon't want to run on start up
reboot
they will still work
stevenlewis

If you're good in the registry here is where they are being loaded from
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]

and of course look in start --programs--startup
you can remove those also
stevenlewis

to see exactly where these programs are called from go to start --run and type
msinfo32
then go to software environment--startup programs, and this will give you the path

"shutting down a process that is needed for the the camera to run, especially if you boot normally and it works"

DOH!!!! Why didn't I think of that.
Oh yea - I'm not an expert..lol
I'm going to try the "process of elimination" to see what process I am shutting down that is required.
