Can anyone help confirm my startup menu

by 3151jeff / July 14, 2005 2:45 PM PDT

these are the items listed under the startup tab of the System Configuration Utility and would like to know if there is anything running that should not be:
TINTSETP as above
ehtray C:\WINDOWS\ehome\...
PRONoMgr C:Program Files\Intel...
igfxtray C:WINDOWS\system...
hkcmd as above
NeroCheck as above
mcmnhdlr "c:\PROGRA~1\mcafe...
mcvsshld "c:\PROGRA~1\mcafe...
mcagent c:\PROGRA~1\mcafee...
mcupdate C:\PROGRA~1\mcafe...
zlclient C:\Program Files\Zone
gcasServ "C:\Program Files\Micr...
type32 "C:\Program Files\Micr...
lxbvbmgr "C:\Program Files\Lex...
fm3032 "C:\Program Files\Lex...
blank blank... HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft..
jusched C:\Program Files\Java

TeaTimer C:\Program Files\Spyb...
Adobe Reader Spec... C:\PROGRA~1\Adobe...
InterVideo WinCine... C:\PROGRA~1\INTER..
Microsoft Office C:\PROGRA~1\MICR...
These are what is listed, some I can guess at others are totally unknown and probably part of Windows. What I would like is some one with the knowledge to give me their opinion. Thanks

I am baffled by one listing
by 3151jeff / July 15, 2005 1:31 AM PDT

the one item has
no entry(blank) under "Startup Item"
no entry (blank) under "Command"
and says this under "Location"
is this unusual or something that should not be on the starup menu?

I am also wondering if
by 3151jeff / July 15, 2005 1:42 AM PDT

I can remove any of these from the startup menu? I noticed that NeroCheck, Adobe Reader, InterVideo WinCine, Microsoft Office and winampa are possible items I could remove if it will not cause any damage or cripple the computer.
FYI...I have a P4-2.8ghz-512ram-160hard drive and use my computer mostly for email, this forum, help and learning topics on the internet. To date this is all I do, mostly the learning, online courses and this site. My level of computer know how is beginner and gaining. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Wonderful site, I am enjoying it already. The spell check feature is one that a lot of people on this site could really use, especially the younger people who were never taught how to spell.
Keep up your site, it is refreshing, informative and fun!

Wayne .. using the "Starter" program along with the
"Bleeping Computer" site to identify what the items were on my start menu, I have reduced it down to about 6 items. I really appreciate the advice and I am still looking into some of the other cool stuff on your site.

you can (and should) remove them

In reply to: I am also wondering if

the basic idea is to have as few programs as possible run at start up...

i also notice you have messenger running, if you use it 90% of the time that you are online, it's ok, but if you use it 10% of the time, don't run it at start up, it's just a waste of resources, just run it when needed...

Removing these items won't hurt anything, will it? Regarding Messenger I don't even use it. But I am concerned about the blank entry, described in this string.
