How to remove Windows Startup Programs in XP

Posted September 3rd, 2007.

Microsoft Windows XP comes with the System Configurationtool, Msconfig.exe. This program provides a way to manage the process and applications that start automatically when you boot Windows. To start the program:

1. Click Start, click Run, type Msconfig, and then press Enter.

2. On the Startup tab, you’ll see a list of all the programs and processes that are set to run when Windows XP loads.

3. Speed up your overall start time by clearing the check box next to any item you think you don’t need.

4. Click Apply, and then restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

Poison & Ratt Concert West Palm Beach

Posted September 3rd, 2007.

Here are some pictures that I took at the Poison concert last night. Ratt and Veins of Jenna were the two opening acts for the concert. I never did see Ratt or Poison back in the 80’s so I could not pass this up. I was actually a much bigger Ratt fan then Poison back then. The concert turned out to be even way better that I expected. Both Poison and Ratt have their original singer and lead gutarists. Actually I think that Poison had all of its original band members. Andria went with me to the concert which is very rare. Here are some pictures. Enjoy 🙂
