Clean up old MSConfig listings
MSConfig is a really handy utility. I use it all the time to remove items
from the system's startup that I may want to add again later. (Printer
utilities, sound drivers, etc) However, there are often plenty of items that you
may wish to permanently remove from MSConfig's startup area.
To get rid of the extra entries you must edit the registry.
- Start regedit (Start->Run and type REGEDIT, then press OK).
- Browse to HKLM*\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg
and HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupfolder
- Delete any items listed in there that you no longer want shown unchecked
*HKLM refers to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
