    In the startup list of MSCONFIG is a program which I have deleted.

    Why is it still in the mscinfig startup list. I have run RegCleaner and while this tidied up a whole heap of stuff this program still remains in the listing. I have even followed the path indicated for the file and it is not there?

    Being a fanatic for keeping things clean I'd rather like to get rid of this... any ideas?

  2. Why don't you just use the 'Startup List' section of RegCleaner and remove the item from the list?

    You can remove inactive entries in msconfig by deleting subkeys of:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupfolder
    and
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg
