If you do not want to use Selective Start and prevent the Kodak Easyshare
software from starting ---do not use the MSCONFIG process----you can go to
Start-----All programs---Startup folder--which will contain the two Kodak
programs--right click on each and delete--this does not remove the programs
--but will stop them from starting up when Windows is loaded. You can them
manually start the Easyshare program when needed. You did not use
Msconfig---you did not change your startup process from Normal to
Selective--if you want to use Selective --fine--you can do that--either way
will work. I did not want to use Selective--you may.
