as you can see on the screenshot (attached), ive had the blaster virus. is there a way of getting rid of these entires on the msconfig window as these no longer exist so why should they be an option to start up with windows?

open regedit from the run command and navigate to the keys you need to remove, right click and delete em.

The entries are under:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupfolder

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg

Enyo ???? sry to correct you but those folders are empty
if you look carefully in msconfig the location of the entry is stated as

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \Run

:doh:

2zee, when you uncheck an item in msconfig it is placed under one of keys i posted above (which it goes to depends on if it is a run entry or from the startup folder), if it were left in its current location it would continue to load with windows.

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!
