What function does each of these perform, what would occur if I deleted them from the startup sequence and how are they deleted? They do not show on the startup task list that comes up through msinfo32, which is where I would expect them to be.

The Msgloop seems to have something to do with a sound driver from Aztech Labs. Do you have a sound card from Aztech Labs?

Start > Run msconfig

and Look in the autoexec.bat and config.sys files and win.ini and system.ini for references to these things

Msg32 (Nemesys Music):

Background task installed by the GigaStudio and GigaSampler music sampling software packages.  This task only shows up when you start using either package.
 
Necessary for the proper operation of GigaStudio/GigaSampler.


Msgloop (Crystal):

Background program which gets installed with the drivers for older sound cards based on the Crystal chipset (eg. Adlib Audio, Aztech, Acer). This background program is also present in the drivers for more modern sound cards. MSGLOOP.EXE is also called the "Conexant WaveStream Message Server".  These sound cards are often found in Hewlett-Packard PCs and some Compaq PCs.

There are reports of MSGLOOP preventing Scandisk and Defrag from working properly, or causing crashes at boot-up.  Since I am not certain about what MSGLOOP actually does, I recommend you leave it alone unless you experience strange problems, or you have changed your sound card, in which case disable or delete it with Startup Manager, and then test thoroughly.

PiaZawa,
1.I do not, nor did I ever, use these and they are no files or folders on my PC that pertain to them:
GigaStudio and GigaSampler music sampling software packages
2.AS stated in the question,MSGLOOP does not appear on the startup startup menu. The sound card has not changed. Yes, I do plan on keeping this as is unless I learn more about it.

Well, no reason to go at me with that attitude - I'm just trying to help.
I'm sorry my suggestions did not apply to you or your situation.

PiaZawa,
I'm very sorry that I came across that way. It was not intentional. I was trying to be more specific as to my exact situation.
Again, I apologize that the way I wrote my comment offended you.

CrazyOne,
Yes, I did all that prior to contacting Experts Exchange. I also don't have an Aztech sound card.
This whole issue is really no big deal, I just like to know what the things that are running on my computer are for, and if I can eliminate them. It's sort of like cookies - I don't like people putting them on my computer unless they are of some benefit to me. Most of the time, it's the other way around.

Yeah I do I understand. What you could temproralily do is rename the files and see what happens. If for some reason Windows doesn't reboot you can get into safe mode or use the Win98 boot disk to rename them back.
