    Just recently I installed MS Office for XP. When I went into msconfig, as I didn't want to load up the MS Office common startup, I found old programmes which I had uninstalled recently but still have their startup registry (not sure what exactly it is) still loaded there.

    -- How do I clear them?

    easier way
    <<<<< remove the office icon from the startup folder reboot - that removes office from msconfig - the other way around leaves a dead entry as you've noticed......For multiple entries enable the same ones reboot this turns it back into one.....For Uninstalled programs - enable msconfig entry before uninstalation....... Thus eliminating the need for reg hacks
