Sometimes an application that is loaded during Windows startup may cause some problems. These problem can be anything from software installation problems to instability problems. Windows 98 SE and up has a utility called 'msconfig' which facilitates regulating the startup of services, drivers and applications during startup for troubleshooting purposes.

1. Start > Run
2. Type 'msconfig' (without quotes) and hit ok
3. On "General" tab select "Diagnostic Startup" and hit OK
4. Reboot
5. Try doing whatever didn't work before, if problem fixed, use "Selective Startup" to narrow down what is causing the problem.
6. Don't forget to set back to "Normal Startup" once done testing.

If you are not sure what a startup items is and wether you can deselect it or not, search for it at provided by Pacman's Portal
