In Win98 any startup options you disable with MSCONFIG are moved from the RUN or RUNSERVICES key in the registry to the RUN- or RUNSERVICES- keys. (note the dashes) Delete the entire RUN- or RUNSERVICES- branches to clear them from MSCONFIG.

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RUN SERVICES-

If the application was launched via a shortcut in the Startup group on the StartMenu then those shortcuts are moved to the "Disabled Startup Items" group on the Startmenu. Delete that entire group.
