How to delete files in the Startup

My Notebook was infected by virus. I run Combofix, and the virus was removed. But in the "Startup" of the MSCONFIG, is still showing the box "19496" that was the virus. Besides that I have deleted other programs, that are still in  the MSCONFIG.
How to remove those entries in the Msconfig  "Startup"?

Locations of the entries in MSConfig
The enabled/checked items are populated from the following registry locations:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Run
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Run

-and-

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Windows
Values named Run & Load

The disabled entries are present in these locations:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Shared Tools \ MSConfig \ startupreg
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Shared Tools \ MSConfig \ startupfolder

To remove the entries, start the Registry Editor (regedit.exe) and navigate to the above paths. Backup the key before deleting it.

The virus directory (or file) present in the Msconfig/startup is not in the two disabled entries you have quoted.
Could you tell?

The files are there in the place quoted by kanlue, but inside a folder with different name than the virus
