Clean out unused start entries in msconfig



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!


no prob... i tried that with winME.. works well. I didnt even look to see if it worked with XP because they are kept in diff locations. Ill look it up again. thanks!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
