Windows 7: Microsoft Windows Operating System Doppleganger

I'm not sure what you mean by clone. For a clean install all settings would be set to default, unless you puposely reimported them which is not a good idea as it is a corruption path.

There wasn't anything in the msconfig Startup list that was left over, just MSE which you had already installed (right) on the new install and your sidebar gadgets.

Just make normal settings changes and avoid tweaking as it is hard to unwind later plus Win7 doesn't need it.

I downloaded MSE after the install.I set up the gadgets after MSE.I then went to Ststem Configuration and saw the entry for MWOS and disabled it(Sidebar Gadgets).Wen I re-booted it started up again.

I havent imported anything but my music.

Sorry,Iwhat I meant by clone is a redundant file of some sort.I figured that since there were two entries for the same app,maybe there were two entries for they're setting or whatnot.

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.

Interesting tool.I shall chek it out forthwith.
If the synaptics software is not installed while the item is still seen checked up you would first uncheck that and go with a full system restart to insure any part of it is unloaded before going to try the cleaner program. The only way you would still see it following a fresh clean install would be having imported a previous backup for the user files and settings however unless you only performed an inplace upgrade to repair type.
