I forgot how you get to that on windows?

I would like to see all the programs that are using my memory up.

Hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete

It will bring up a window with the running programs listed.

I remember there is something where you can disable all the BS programs that come up on startup.

If you have Windows 98, you can run msconfig.exe and disable all the programs that load at startup. This is sometimes the only way you can get the disk defragmentation software to run, as when these startup programs hit the disk, the defragmentation software restarts.

Right click on "Start"
Goto "Document and setting/Your folder"
Click on "Start Menu"
Click on "Programs"
Then on "Startup"
Delete all the sh!t you don't want to startup.

Unfortunately, this doesn't get everything. For example, Real Player has a little program to check for updates that loads when you boot up, but it doesn't show up in the Start Menu. The msconfig.exe program for Windows 98 will show everything (including all the little programs for Windows to properly run) that loads.

This is a neat little program for seeing what currently running on your machine (W95 & 98 only)

Use msconfig and registry editor if you are comfortable with the latter.

At least with 98 you can start in "Safe" mode and it runs the basic Windows only. Then you can run scan disk or defrag without things starting and screwing things up.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure Ctrl+Alt+Del will show everything hidden away in background.
