  • 3. reorder startup sequence
    I have a usb scanner that locks up my system while its loading at startup. Not a problem, but it is one of the last things to load up, so I'll already be started on something then have to stop and wait for my scanner to load. Is there any way to reorder my startup so my scanner loads first? internet connection load before my web based programs to avoid "unable to connect" and "page not found" errors? virus scan and firewall starts before any web based programs?

I have this wierd problem.  My icons in the Quick Launch 
bar on the Taskbar and all the little icons on the 
Taskbar for that matter are seemingly randomly chosen.  
No idea why this is happening.  I have run several virus 
scans and nothing comes up.  I have downloaded all 
available updates from MS.  Anyone out there experienced

To refresh the icons in the system change the size of icons in Start - Control Panel - Display - Appearance - Advanced, click apply then change the size back.

5.icons wont stay put

just today it started, if i reboot or do something that triggers it (not 
sure what it is), but all of a sudden the icons collapse back as if set to 
auto arrange).

i use a utility ive had for awhile that allows me to restore the positions 
from the last save, so i can get them back except for any recent changes, i 
think i acquired this back in win98 cuz it happened fairly often and have 
just kept it as a handy tool for occassional problems, but this is now 
happening lots.

is there some setting or 'clean' i can do?
