    Under the start up tab I now have quite a few entries that are no longer on my p.c. Can someone point me in the direction to get rid of these entries. I know its in the registry somewhere.:(

    Simply right click on the invalid entries and choose delete.
     
  3. just use search and look for "xxx" u want to get rid of.
    u should get to 'run' , 'run once' something like that.

    You want to get rid of invalid entries in MSconfig? They are in the registry at
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupfolder
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg

    Thanks for the reply yoyo, found it. can I delete the folder as it appears on the left in REGEDIT or do I have to open it up and alter something.

    You can delete the folders (the subfolders not the entire "startupfolder" and "startupreg"- folders). But as always backup the key to be on the safe side.
