There is no explorer to uncheck under msconfig, there are other considerations as well........
.........some people have their mouseware as an entry in msconfig, and they will find it very difficult to go anywhere on the desktop after a reboot without a mouse.
It really does not matter if you uncheck systry or not as it uses less than 1% resources according to MS you need it, truth is you don't. I agree do not uncheck systry, but if you do it is not the end of the world.
Please understand I'm in no way knocking your advice down, I just wanted to point out the facts here.
Take a few moments and look at the link I provided and you will have a new take on the nuts and bolts of msconfig.
We all start with zero knowledge and we just build on that hopefully learning something new each day.
I think you just had an oversight and confused ctrl/alt/delete and msconfig.
Then to I guess to clarify this further, disabling any mouseware I've encountered won't stop the mouse from working. The mouseware only adds settings to allow the user to "tweak" certain the mouse functions like acceleration, double click speed, etc .... It will be slow moving but the mouse will still function while you debug startup with everything disabled.
hey dark star.....in no way would i ever take any offence with yours or anyone elses corrections,as you say we are all here to help and learn and glean advice from other members...."oversite"....lol maybe,but i think my excuse is that i was just checking in before i went to work and was maybe in a rush......(well......is there anything better?)..and thinking about it,the mouseware option is not obvious to everyone i agree.......smack my legs.
catch ya later.
