  1. Normal Start Up OR Selective Start Up


    Another thread prompted me to have a look see at msconfig. To my surprise I find I'm operating with "Selective Start UP:


    Normal Start Up OR Selective Start Up [​IMG]


    Only twice has this machine been accessed by someone other than myself, 1. A Microsoft Tech (3rd party) for Office installation and 2. A Norton Tech to complete removal of Norton AV. With me watching both times and neither accessed msconfig. Can't understand why this machine would have left Dell with Selective Start Up. SO my question is: With no issues to the contrary, shouldn't I be on "Normal Start Up"? Comments are welcome. Thank you.

    :)

  2. SELECTIVE START UP TO NORMAL START UP

    Hi Ajaya,

    Thank you for providing the details.

    I would suggest you to perform a clean boot and check if the issue persists.

    to disable all non-Microsoft services consult the article called Clean Boot.

    Follow: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929135

    Note:After troubleshooting, refer to this section "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting"

    Disclaimer: A clean boot is performed to start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This helps eliminate software conflicts that occur when you install a program or an update or when you
    run a program in Windows. You may also troubleshoot or determine what conflict is causing the problem by performing a clean boot.

    Keep us posted to help you better.

    Normal Start Up OR Selective Start Up

    Hello Clayton, *Smile

    If you have all items checked under "Select startup", it is the same as having "Normal startup" selected.

    "Normal startup" is selected by default. However, if you ever make any changes to this it won't stay selected and only "Selective startup" will afterwards.

    It's nothing to worry about.

  5. Hey, Thanks. It's been working fine like this for who knows how long. But lately my sanity is questionable (a Chemo Side Effect) and I just wanted a second opinion. *Confused On a good day I'll worry about things that really don't need my attention. I'll go ahead and mark this one "Solved".

    You have a good day and take care.

    You've probably got some "startup" items disabled. Check the task manager.

    Yes I do @skcusime . Hadn't thought of that, Dropbox & OneDrive. Thanks, now I can quit wondering about this one and move on to wondering about something else.
