I have been using Returnil 2008 on an XP SP3 machine for some time along with Startup Delayer. Startup Delayer works almost flawlessly most of the time. However, for some reason, I usually run into a problem after using Returnil. Usually, after I shut down and restart, only a few of my startup items reload in the system tray (usually just a couple windows things, plus my AV and my Firewall) -- but nothing else. Even after rebooting a couple times -- the result is the same. So usually the only way to recover from this is a System Restore -- which is a real pain. This problem generally occurs after a complete computer shutdown -- not just a soft reboot. By the way, even though I'm using Startup Delayer, I doubt if this is the problem because I know someone else using the same exact setup who has no problems.
