Hello all, I have unchecked "Load Startup Items" in msconfig so that my games will run alot faster, but after doing this I found out that I can no longer login to instant messengers, and email accounts. Is there a process that I absolutely need to have on to be able to access these features? If so any I'd gladly appreciate information on this required process and how to activate it. Thanks for any future replys.

Hi drunder, welcome to TSF....

please add a screenshot or list all the items in your msconfig startup tab as they will make it easier to advise you.

Do any of the games you play require an internet connection?

Wow....that's quite a list!!!!

My first guess would be to re-enable all the Norton software as it can have an effect on the internet even when it's disabled....however that would be defying the point of disabling startup items to save resources to play games as Norton products are heavy memory/cpu users. Though there are alternative anti-virus, firewall products available which IMO do a far better job whilst using far less of the system.

Perhaps some of the AOL ones may be needed too????
