      just follow it
      Windows 2000 does not have the MSCONFIG program that was provided with Windows 98.

      You can use the Windows XP version of MSCONFIG.

      Copy the file msconfig.exe from the c:\windows\system folder to the Windows 2000 c:\winnt\system32 folder.
      Download the msconfig.exe Windows XP version file from our site if you do not have it easily accessible, this version will work with windows 2000.

      if you download this file, save it to the c:\winnt\system32 folder so you can use the Start/Run method to access it, or save it to the desktop, that way you can access it by clicking on the icon it will create on your desktop.

      Click | Start | Run | and type msconfig on the text box and click the OK button to start MSCONFIG
      ignore the error messages you get about not finding the following files
      Click the startup tab
      Check or Uncheck the check boxes of the programs you want to run or not run

      It is best to write down which programs were checked so you can have a copy of them for later reference. Some of the startup entries are from anti-virus programs and must be re-checked after finishing any troubleshooting

      other way to prevent unnecessary software just follow the list below

      You can use the windows xp version of msconfig.Google it, i’m more than sure that you’ll be able to donwload it.
      Or use third party programs such as:
      -ccleaner -free
      -system mechanic …and more

      Another option will be via regedit
      KEY_CURRENT_USER Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run
