Default how to keep starting up.

Hi all,
I had a big problem with staring up in windows xp professional sp3.

After adjusting in "startup selection" in "general" menu is Selective startup with marked all such as process SYSTEM.INI fie, process WIN.INI, Load system services, load startup items. after that press apply button and OK then restart computer.
But around 5 hours after I go back "system configuration utility" interface. It become normal startup.
Actually, If my computer keep "normal startup" function. So other computers can not print over my computer.
Therefore, I want keep my computer allware marked "Selective startup"
Please help me.

"If my computer keep "normal startup" function. So other computers can not print over my computer"

If you need to use your computer as a printer server, just let other computers to look up your PC IP address like run: \\123.123.123.01 or whatever IP your computer is and let those PC to download the printer driver from your PC.

Hope this helps!
