Thanks for the link to the DSL. You've been very helpful.

The other items weren't in my programs\startup folder. I found them (after doing a search in windows explorer) under c:\windows\pss. I guess I can just delete them from here.

I was just wondering how your file that you created called cleanconfig.reg (Regedit 4) deleted those other items? There was no "del" command in those lines. I promise that's my last question.

The registry works different from the file-system.

You can compare it to the cardsystems they used in libraries to keep track of where the books were (supposed to be)

What we did is remove the cards that were keeping track of books that were missing/destroyed.

The "-" sign in the lines tell the registry editor to remove the subkey that follows.
