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.
