Troubleshooting Software Conflicts
Programs running in the Background
Sometimes you will run into the problem where two programs that are installed on your PC conflict with each other and refuse to run at the same time. It can be tricky to find the culprit, because you think that no other programs were running, so what could possibly conflict? You'd be surprised at how many programs are running on your PC right now. Take a look

the conflict when applicable.
To take this one step further, you can download a neat little program called Startup Cop at http://184.108.40.206/pcmag/pctech/content/18/08/ut1808.001.html. It not only lets you prevent programs from loading when booting, it also lets you create separate profiles so you can boot with only pre-defined applications running. This tool is especially helpful if you have Windows 95 which does not come with the msconfig tool.
