Ok, This is not a important thing at all, but I am a little OCD about crap on my computer.
Even with uninstalling the programs and removeing them from my computer. The programs still list in the MSCONFIG start up tab. How do I clear that out. Its pain in the butt for me to look through the entire list to find what im looking for :whistling:

Hi LiaoGoren...

To get the stragglers out of the Startup list, will require a registry edit.

Click Start, then Run, type regedit and click "Ok". In the left pane, expand (click +) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SOFTWARE, then Microsoft, then Windows, then Current Version, and click on Run. In the right pane, delete the entry for the program you want to remove.

Always back up any registry keys you are working with...in this case, the "Run" key. This is so you can replace it if something goes awry. Registry edits are done at your own risk.

Thats what I did before, the problem is in that list it only shows the things I have active. Not the things in the list that are unchecked.
How do I remove the ones that are unchecked?
Do I have to check them all turn them all on and then go into regedit? GOD I HOPE NOT... lol
