Q. When I boot my computer, it asks me to find TrayApp.msi for some sort of HP software I assume. I no longer have the disks for them so I cannot reinstall them in order to fix it. I was wondering how to eliminate items from my startup menu, I can view them by going to Run > MSINFO32 > Startup, but how do I remove items from this list? Is there a file that contains these file names I can edit manually with notepad or something? Or can I go Regedit and do it that way?

A. The list of programs under the Startup information in MSINFO32 comes from a number of different sources.  You can figure out where each program comes from by looking in the Location

Q.  I'm using XP Pro (SP2). I've noticed that all of a sudden, and only recently too, the names of many of my files appear in blue text when I view them in Windows Explorer. Not all files are affected, and it seems that ANY file type can be affected. All the files open as normal and behave as normal so this blue text doesn't seem to have affected the file in any other ways, so it's more of a mystery than a problem (and it's beginning to annoy me now because I can't figure out what caused it). Any ideas about what may have caused this and how I can fix it?

A.  The files changed color because they were compressed to save disk space.  Files that are not used often are sometimes compressed automatically by Windows.  You can also opt to have any file/directory compressed whenever you want.  Accessing compressed files and directories may take a little longer than uncompressed files, but not much longer.  Also, don't go compressing everything

To load Windows XP onto a SATA drive you need to proceed as follows:

1. Copy the SATA drivers (these can usually be found
