Default MSConfig > Startup [; ; win98]

sponsored links

 
Hello, I am running Win98 (not sure if its SE or not but it probably won't make a difference) and in my startup tab under msconfig there is loads of items (unticked by myself) that have been deleted. Is there anyway I can clear this list like i can in add/remove programs with TweakUI?

Thanks

In Windows 2000 it's under:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg

Thats a registry key in case you dont know.
Simply delete the thing you have unticked, that will clean up MSConfig.

Probably in the same area of Windows 98 (SE or not)

Download RegCleaner from www.jv16.org It's a great program!

thanks for the replies guys, however, the reg key doesnt exist on 98 and that regsupreme doesnt clean it either.
I've searched the registry for 'msconfig' and it doesnt return anything.

Get a program called Startup Control Panel - ***********.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

It will let you change the startup options as well as delete the entries at the source (IE registry, startup group, etc.)
