    I am running Xp and hve a rather extensive start menu including privacy
    stuff etc. There are times when speed is more important than gettin all this
    stuff loaded. I vaguley recall when on-line with a service rep one time that
    each time he had me reboot he suggested hitting an F key (maybe esc) each
    time something started to load and it would skip that program anc get to
    windows more quickly. Can anyone help me recall how to do that?

    Hold down the shift key while your machine starts up.
