open regedit and navigate to hklm\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run and delete those items there. also from runonce.

Under hklm\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run ,The only one there is the one I have selected "Logmein". Under HKEY_lOCAL_USERS, nothing is listed at all (both run & run once).
Rindi was on the right track. Msconfig moves them to a quarantine area when you untick them. To delete them, re-tick them, choose 'apply', then use registry editor to delete them.

Autoruns is a free pseudo-microsoft tool that manages your startup keys - it works similarly but you can right click on the key and choose 'delete' (like msconfig, they need to be ticked).

Be careful with it - just like msconfig it will let you delete things you really shouldn't.

Hi there,

I wouldn't suggest using the registry editor unless your comfortable enough to do so, as deleting the wrong thing could end up with you messing windows up unless you know what your doing.

Instead i would recommend a free program such as 'codestuff - starter', which is extremely easy to use and remove what you want from your startup.
