Windows 7: Microsoft Windows Operating System Doppleganger

Peace to all.

I recently clean-installed W 7 HP 64-Bit,tried to disable entry in configuration settings and it reappeared at re boot.

Should I be scared of this?

If it's safe,is there a clone I can safely get rid of?

Thanks for any advice on the matter.

You don't need Synaptics unless you want the scroll feature on a laptop touchpad. It may need to also be turned off by poking through its tabs accessed by clicking it in SysTray.

Put your cursor on the MS items to expand them to see what they are. You want MSE and any gadgets or stikynotes you want to start up with your system. That's all I allow.

It is Microsoft Windows Operating System.

Thanks for the look-out.

If the program was never reinstalled and you simply restored user files and settings that would be the only way the entries for any startup items from a no longer existant program would still be seen.

There is however a freeware tool called the MSConfiig Cleanup I came across that allows you to remove useless entries when no program is on or was just removed but left entries behind. Windows MSConfig Cleaner – Remove Windows Startup Program Entries easily

You just have to use care when using it however to avoid seeing anything else you want removed when going to select the ones you want off. I came across that one some time back when having a similar problem after a program was removed still seeing the main item hanging around in the msconfig utility.

Thanks for the reply,Night Hawk.

I just Clean-installed last night.I haven't uninstalled any programs.I have moddified the existing programs from within Windows.

As well as the restoring of the user files.No restorations.Only back-ups.

Could it be that I haven't activated my system yet?I disabled this after the install.Could it be that this is what is used to keep track?

There should be an extension beyond MSWin7 OS like /stikynotes, /sidebar, or /mse. MSE needs to be in there, so turn it on if not.

MSE is the first one.The other is a reg key I believe.Let me verify.........

It is my sidebar.I have it to run with highest priveledges.

Thanks again,gregrocker.

Another case solved.

I went to the specified path and there weren't any folders that were duplicates.
