    unwanted program still listed in msconfig

    I deleted a useless registry cleaner program but it is still listed in
    msconfig as a startup program.

    The file appears like this in the command list:
    c:\program files\uniblue\registrybooster 2\....
    (note the lower case "c" and "program files")

    I was silly to even consider this program for Vista and now I can't get its
    footprint out the msconfig list.

    Hi,

    Run regedit, check this key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig

    You'll probably find it under startupfolder or startupreg, simply delete the
    unwanted entry for this program under one of these.

    Hi RockySquirrel,

    In addition to Rick Rogers idea, you might take a look in these locations in the Methods for this tutorial.
