310353 How to Perform a Clean Boot in Windows XP

Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me)

  1. Click Start, click Run, type msconfig in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. On the General tab, click Selective startup.
  3. Click to clear all of the check boxes under Selective startup.

    Important Examine the General tab to make sure that the check boxes that you cleared are still cleared. If none of the check boxes are selected, proceed to the next method. If you see a selected, unavailable check box (it appears dimmed and has a check mark in it), your computer is not truly clean-booted and you may require assistance from the manufacturer of the program that is listed next to the selected, unavailable check box.
