When I log into my PC I get the error: Windows cannot find 'C:/Program Files/Ghostsurf 2005/DeleteSatellite.exe' Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search fot a file, click the Start Button, and then click Search.
I removed Ghost Surf from my PC, why is it still looking for this file? and how do I get it to stop?

Hi anazopyreo...

The program is still referenced in the registry and is probably sill listed in the startup list. Did you remove it with it's own uninstaller or through Add or Remove Programs?

Click Start, then Run, type msconfig and click "Ok". Under the "Startup" tab, look in the list for and entry relating to the uninstalled application. If you find it, uncheck the box next to it and "Apply" the change. Reboot.

Upon restarting, you will see a Selective Startup dialog window...this is normal. Tick the box to not show it again and click "Ok".

This should eliminate the error at startup. We'll still need to find it and remove it from the registry, but finish these steps, first.

I'm glad to hear there is more, because this didn't work the last time I tried it, anyway, I finished this much. What's next?

go to:
Start > Run
In the box, type regedt32

navigate to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
Remove any key related to Ghost Surf.

Hope this helps,
greets
