i have the problem that a lot of programms start up automatically and are visable direct next to the windows clock on the right site.

i can't find them in the startup folder.

how to remove these programms there?
i guess that if removed they'll not startup by starting windows (?).

looks fine, but are you talking about win98?

the path is a little bit different at my mashine and i don't see checkboxes. right-click also doesn't work.
any idea?

some stuff is also not in the registry listed (e.g. cyberlink agent)

go to start --> run and type msconfig
go to the startup tab, and uncheck them there, reboot
to see where programs are being loaded from, go to start --> run and type msinfo32
click on the + for software environment, and then click on startup programs, and this will tell you from where the programs are being loaded from (the registry,start up folder,)
