How do I delete disabled startup items in msconfig?

Hello, I been doing some cleaning recently, and in the startup section of msconfig, startup options for programs that I deleted are still there. They're disabled, but how do I get rid of them from the list completely?.

Hello gherrick,

The tutorial below can help show you how to delete startup items. I find METHOD FIVE with CCleaner is the easiest way, buy either method will work.

Startup Programs - Change

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You should be removing/uninstalling any software from the add/remove programs list from with in the control panel, but Brinks tips are perfect advice.

You will find them here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupfolder

Just delete the ones that shouldn't still be listed.

I think Glaryutilitis has a module to do it, or maybe they used to.
