I know with windows XP theres a utility called MSCONFIG which is run at Start--Run and A system utility comes up and which you can click on the startup TAB which ends alot of exe/apps..

With Win2k that feature is not included.. But there is a version you can download and install on your machine which gives you that feature...

Just follow the instructions..

and if you need help.. ending some of those apps at startup..

post whats running after you DL that utility and I'll help you further
