    Sometimes when I uncheck a box under the startup tab they stay there but do not initialize. Most are supposed to go away when you uncheck them I believe. So my question is, is there a way to get rid of all these unwanted programs from msconfig, that no longer exsist.

    P.S. Most are adware because i know in some cases when you uninstall a program it should delete it from here.

    Use this regfile:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupfolder]
    
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupfolder]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg]
