    ok i tried using that in the startup but it doesnt work that way, i put it in my documents and for some reason my docs is the only thing that i see when windows boots up so ijust put the bat in ther and now everytime it boots i have to manually run the bat file but now i dont have to do a 3 key and do all this crap just to boot, its actually doable for the time being, thanks man, now i need to find a way to fix this confused dvd drive, the thing is, it detects the drive sometimes but then it will disapear, this is a new laptop so im sure its not the drive, it also works well with vista so it may be a driver but i havnt been able to find anything for it :P

    okay for it to start up like you want you have to ask yourself
    do you want to it to start only for you or everyone???
    every user
    HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\run
    only for u
    HKEY CURRENT USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\run
    open regedit and navigate to there


    right-click
    new
    string file
    Name it something you recognize and then in the value data put the file name for the bat...(put the bat somewhere you can easily locate like in the root C: (ex "C:\explorerfix.bat") it should start on the next logon...

    can you unninstall the driver of this disc???

    right click my computer..

    properties

    Device Manager

    there locate your drive right click and click unnistall...
    before you restart your computer take the drive out (if you cant then just restart)
    start completely with the drive gone and restart it again but this time with the drive in...
