Dear Experts,
When I put "msconfig" in run and than press ok.
 start-> run ->msconfig ->System Configuration Utility

Following two things are coming back when I restart my computer
(evenif I remove "checkmark").
netsvr(netsvr.exe) ->HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
mobsync(mobsync.exe/logon) ->HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

What should I do so it won't come back whenever I restart
my computer.

Thanks,
bob

have you tried to go to that specific location and remove that exe file and checked if it would come back again.

make sure you are removing an unwanted process and make sure to backup registry before deleting

When i search "netsvr.exe"  &  "mobsync.exe" both are under "c:/winnt/system32".but in msconfig it shows different path.So i am confuse what to do ?

If i remove and some program uses it than i am in trouble.

Thanks.

>> but in msconfig it shows different path
what does msconfig show about the netsvr.exe's path!

** remember that mobsync.exe is a valid process.... you are not requried to remove the file from the system.... if you dont want to see it running and starting... then you can just untick it and that should stop it..... you dont need to delete this file :)
