am currently running windows ME on b/b ihave noticed lately that a huge number of tasks seem to be running at start up/in the background. I have AVG, Zonealarm and the alcatel modem loaded in the taskbar at startup but when i go into system config it shows loads of other programs loaded, so my question for the night is, what needs to be loaded?? for instance there seems to be 3 differant tasks just for the graphics card alone!!

All you need running are, systray, explorer and power.

ok, in the sts config/startup bos i have got (here goes)
scanreg
task monitor
pchealth
loadpower profile
intelli keyboard
nvcpldaimon (rundll32)
nwiz
winstart0001
schedule agent
machine debug
truvector
run

when i c/a/d i have got running
explorer
winagent
zapro
avg
rundll32
dragdiag
sys
avgserv9
mdm
type32
so i know what the obvious ones are but do i need all these to be in the start up?

You definitely need:-
explorer = explorer (obviously!).
zapro = Zone Alarm utility (firewall).
avg = your AVG antivirus prog.
rundll32 = something to do with the close-down function.
avgserv9 = AVG antivirus update server.

I don't know about the others, though.
