XP startup items help





anandr86
Hi,
Im having a machine running XP home (original). Its got these two items on the startup list that comes in msconfig (last tab). These entries have no names and paths just two blank checked check boxed thats all ..... Its showing its coming from HKLM startup but when i run regedit nothing is there .... I ran a full sys scan with AVG and AVS .... Help !!!!!!

After installing Nvidia video drivers I have noticed that the same entry appears in my startup items as well.

Why not just uncheck them? That way they don't load at startup.

I had the same thing on my old system. Ignorance was bliss for me, in that case.

so, it will still be on the computer. Why not just get rid of it? Your not going to use it anyway. Just takes up space.

Why use a program to edit your registry? Just do it yourself
bond4154
You can download Stompsoft's Registry Repair to kill off a lot of things you don't want. The program is pretty much automatic, and requires little manual work. Or, if you want to do things manually, you can also hit the Start Menu, click Run, type "msconfig", and see what process you want to run at startup, which ones you don't, and the same goes for services as well. It's the basic way to improve computer performance by a bit.

Why go through the trouble of browsing through your registry, making changes, f**king up, restoring the backup if there are programs who do it for you Question

just uncheck it and if you found out there was something error after uncheck it, then recheck it. not a big deal. but i see it is not a very important files to load. so i guess you can uncheck it without worry.
