There are some duplicate title files in msconfig/startup (or some title files are no longer use). How can I remove them from this list?

Thanks

Run Regedit.exe from the run command line.

Go to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

There you will find all files that are starting up. You can delete the files you want to stop.

if you are no longer using the software, uninstall it to clean things up as well.

right click on the "startup" folder in Start-Programs...

or click Start-Run, type in "regedit" hit enter and follow this key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

once in there you will see exactly whats in the msconfig but you will be able to delete them.

Thank you for all responses. I found:
1.Run
2.Run-
3.Runonce
4.RunonceEx
5.RunServicesonce
Which one do I need to choose?
If the file which I need to delete it appears in some folders above, do I have to delete all?

The ones in the key "run-" are the ones that you do not have selected in MSCONFIG

BUT that is not the only places you will find the programs listed in MSCONFIG
Here is the complete list:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run-
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run-
Autoexec.bat
Config.sys
Win.ini  (under the noload=   or norun=   )
Also there may be a folder on your Programs menu "deleted startup programs"

The list above is only for the programs that are listed in MSCONFIG but are not selected to load at startup.

Yeah didn't GEMARTI say that first? What's the deal here?

I am reporting this to the help desk!

Perhaps they can resolve this issue.
