Windows XP. In my experience.

Since this thread is not Linux related, it belongs in the General forum. A mod will probably move it.

Please do a spell check on this and avoid using run on sentences. I can't understand what your're trying to say unless I read it many times.

By the way, the most stable OS is definitely not windows ME.

Good Day.

Start > Run > msconfig > <press Enter>

Them remove the program from starting up if its listed there somewhere in the options or window that comes up.

Anything else, well, you didn't really get into any further details about it so no one will know, not even really sure if you were asking for help.

Everyone, I think Whitehat has just loss it.

If I had to pick among the windows OSes, I would install windows2000 Pro.
Much more stable than windows98 and not as integrated as XP.

Well i just installed win2003 server and omg.. Whenever i go to the start menu, the computer lags for oh 15 seconds and no my computer is fast. 1.4ghz 256 mb ddr 3300 40gb 7200 rpm.. But not only the start menu, any menu that extends out! It's freakishly annoying if you figure you want to go to
all programs > games > counterstrike = 45 seconds of waiting!!

if any of you guys do know how to fix, plz let me know

For my opinion, windows sux ass.. but i still have to use it for some things. win 2000 is the most stable that i've seen.

Disable shadows under menus. That should do it

Right click my computer>>properties>>advanced tab>>settings button under performance>>visual effects tab>>uncheck "show shadows under menus".
