MSINFO32 --> Software Environment --> Startup Programs HUGE GIGANTIC BIG LIST ?!
Posted on 2006-07-14
I was just wondering.... On some of my systems, those that are what we call "problematic", I have recently been noticing that their startup list in msinfo32 is HUGE!
For some reason it includes .DEFAULT, and NTAUTHORITY/SYSTEM 's entries in there which bloat up the list like a baloon!
I google'd a bit and couldn't find anything relating to this. The only "fix" I know of, is to format! On a freshly, out-of-the-box configured system the list is short and sweet.
Does anyone know WHY that gets corrupted like that? Is there indeed a fix without formatting?
