Rearrange the Loading Order of Startup Extensions

Sometimes a startup extension causes a problem only if it loads before (or after) a certain other startup extension. Rearranging the order in which the startup extensions load can thus eliminate the problem. Typically, to test this out, move a problem startup extension toward the start of the loading order or (if that fails to work) toward the end of the loading order. Restart to see if the problem goes away.

The manual that comes with a startup extension may offer advice about where the startup extension should load and what other common startup extensions should precede it or come after it (be careful not to reverse the order of codependent startup extensions, as described in "If the Startup Extension Does Not Load or Run," later in this Fix-It). Otherwise, you have to experiment. Of course, there is no guarantee that any amount of reordering will help. If a few reshuffles don't seem to do anything, give up.
