How do you delete strings in your startup tab in the System Configuration Utility, I have so many programs that put themselves there that I will never use on startup and some that are just "suspect". How do I get rid of these permanently? I know I can uncheck them but can I remove the line altogether?

If you dont study your "dump" file when the sytem crashes delete that

Delete the other blank as well.... cant see as its cut off but its a prgram thats not related to Anti V

Post back with a list of JUST the ones running ie: ticked

also get startupCPL linked in the thread I said read then pop back with all remaining running stuff

Thanks all is well now, I used the StartupCPL and deleted what I didnt use. The problem was that I had to enable all of them for the strings to show up in StartupCPL, making it possible for me to delete them. Thanks again

Well, I've had that before. Unticked stuff in my Startup tab in msconfig...

In fact, that is not the place to delete the registry entries.

It is:
HK Local Machine/Software/Microsoft/Shared Tools/Msconfig/startupreg

Delete the entries there...

You know I did see that in the registry when I couldnt find what I was looking for and thought I had hit the jackpot but not know for sure. I didnt want to mess with it. Good to know thanks a bunch existenz

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!
