    How do you change the order that system processes start up?

    I think that processes are asynchronous i.e. it does not make any
    difference in which order they are started - one process might start another
    process but effectively it is a toss up which finishes first. Also
    processes can not communicate with each other directly - only by writing to
    files and setting environment variables. One process starting before
    another does not affect the order in which the PC carries them out. Anyway,
    that is what I think, off the cuff. You might already have looked at
    System Configuration (one of the Admin tools in Control Panel). The Help
    about that is quite good; you can turn anything you like off and on using
    it.

    If you're talking about start order during a system boot, the answer
    is you can't change the start order unless you gather up the tasks you
    want to control and start them from a batch file in the sequence you
    lay out in that file.
