Identify the Problem Startup Extension

If your problem disappears as a result of turning off all your startup extensions, you have a startup extension conflict. The next step is to determine which startup extension or combination of startup extensions is the source of the problem. To do this you will have to selectively enable and disable startup extensions. Of the three methods for disabling startup extensions described in the previous section, a startup management utility is clearly the best here. It offers the maximum in convenience and flexibility. Dragging startup extensions in and out of your System Folder from the Finder also works, but it is much more time-consuming. The Shift key technique is useless here; you cannot selectively disable startup extensions with it.

Bearing this in mind, try the following suggestions, in the order indicated, as appropriate.
