When you use Msconfig and then reboot, you will have that stupid Selective startup screen appear… Majorly annoying… Download and install this file. It will stop that from appearing….

Disable Selective startup screen save it to your Desktop (you may want to right click and use Save Target As). Double-click the xp_nomsconfig.vbs file after closing MSConfig. You will not see the Selective Startup screen on the next boot. This script can be viewed in Notepad or any text editor, as to the specific Registry key and value that are updated.

Enable Administrator Account on Startup Page Open the ZIP file you just downloaded and extract the contents to your hard disk. Double click the EXE file that you extracted to run the utility. This utility will allow you to toggle the Administrator account to Enabled or Disabled (on the Welcome Screen), depending on its current state.

This one stops Windows Messanger from Auto running. You can stop it in Msconfig, but if you ever use the Program then it will automatically turn itself back on in Msconfig…. Stop Windows Messanger from Auto Running Navigate to where you saved it and double click the file. A confirmation dialog will appear and remind you to log off/back on or restart your computer..

Note: Some of these items are User specific settings. It may be necessary to run each VBS/EXE file while logged into to that User’s desktop. If your anti-virus software warns you of a “malicious” script, this is normal if you have “Script Safe” or similar technology enabled. These scripts are not malicious, but they do make changes to the System Registry.
