Windows Startup options

By bryanmuts2000 ·
How do I configure windowsXP so that on startup it runs a certain program and users cannot access any other function other than the program running?

I want to stop users from doing anything on the PC except to work with the specific programme.

You need to understand what each of the applications are before you disable their execution during startup.

Open up a Google/Ask search and enter the name of the application. This will assist in the determination of whether this is a critical APP during the startup process...

Hopes this helps!

The first part of this soulution somehow got deleted.

Anyway, go to START-->RUN. Enter MSCONFIG.

You will get the System Configuration Menu. From here, select the STARTUP Tab.
You will get a display which shows all the applications which are enabled during startup. (...they will have a checkmark in a checkbox...)
