Hey
I have a big list of unchecked programs in the Start-Up tab in msconfig that Ive uninstalled. Is there a way to remove them??

Thanks

everything that's in the startup tab of msconfig is from the following places:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

X:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

X:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Sometimes stuff in Win.ini or System.ini

If msconfig has disabled something in the registry, I noticed that it usually puts it in a -Run key (I think).

hey
sorry for bringing this old topic back but im having a problem.

I have a list of things in the startup tab in msconfig and Ive tried to use RegCleaner and went to all those registery keys but not all of the items are there.

Anyone know how to remove them from the list?

thanks

Are these checked or unchecked items?
Disabled items should be in the keys mentioned by Enyo.
Active items should be in the keys mentioned by Zyfos and perhaps also in the RunOnce keys (directly beneath the Run keys).
Never heard of any other locations.
Msconfig should display the address from where an item is started.

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
