    Every time you change something with msconfig, it should put it selective startup mode. When you restart you will get a menu saying it is in selective startup. Or you can just pull up msconfig and on the general tab select selective startup

    Do you have services that you changed or just the startup settings?>
    Always use services.msc for service stuff, as for the programs you can go into the programs it self and change the startup options. Hope that helps

    yeah I hate that. the best way is just to go into messenger and msn and change the 'start when windows starts' option. You will have to poke around, they like to hide those options sometimes.
