    tired of looking at all of the unchecked, unused entries in the startup section of the msconfig (system configurator utility). Here is how to clean it out...

    this is for the folks that know the experienced people that know how to edit the registry....

    1. open registry...
    2. follow [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupfolder]
    3. ensure that folders listed are unchecked and not used in msconfig startup and delete folder as required.

    Once again.. this is for experienced registry users only. deleting things from the registry can result in a permanantly damaged Operating system, do this at your own risk!
