Question Configuring Start-up Programs

I used to have Norton System Works, but not anymore in short.

So I want a program that will allow me to configure which programs open at start-up. I just want something reliable and efficent.

Anybody know any free programs to which I can use?

How about just using the MSCONFIG utility?

start up cop is good. It's free and it's good. It's like msconfig except it gives you more info so you know what you are checking off lol.

Just remember always know what your turning off. you can really screw up your system if you uncheck the wrong thing.

Yeah, I know.

After formatting and reinstalling drivers, stuff like logitech mouse stuff was starting up, which I didn't need.
