Hello all

I would like to know how to remove items from the startup list in MSconfig. I know I can unselect items, but with the items staying on the list It defaults me to selective startup. I would like to not only unselect those items but remove them from the list completely.

If you are talking about programs, you can remove them from Startup or the registry, depending on where they are loading from. The two Registry locations are:

HKCU_Software_Microsoft_Windows_Current Version_Run

and

HKLM_Software_Microsoft_Windows_Current Version_Run

As for services, you don't want to disable them from msconfig. Services should be managed from Control Panel - Administrative Tasks - Services.
