    Removing Startup Items located in the registry

    The System Configuration Utility displays items that start with your PC. These items are generally located in one of two areas. The registry or in Common Startup.

    Should you decide to prevent specific items from starting up you can uncheck them in the System Configuration Utility. Though this method is fine it is ultimately best to remove them from the source. To access the common registry locations of these items take a look in the following areas:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\
    CurrentVersion\Run

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\
    CurrentVersion\RunOnce

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
    CurrentVersion\Run


     


    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
    CurrentVersion\RunOnce

    If you have disabled items in the System Configuration Utility and would like to remove them from the registry also they can be found in one of the following locations:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SharedTools\
    MSConfig\startupfolder

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

    Note: Always make a backup of the Registry prior to making changes. TweakXP.com takes no responsibility for problems that may result from using the Registry Editor incorrectly.
