    Removing Prog's from startup

    I thought I could delete programs out of startup by going into Accessories>System Tools>System Information>Software Environment>Startup Programs. However having followed this to the list of startup programs, I can see what I want to delete, but there is no option to do so. Does anyone know if I am on the right track but the wrong railway? Thanks... <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    1 - Look for shortcuts in the Windows/Start Menu folder, and...

    2 - Go to Start/Run and type msconfig.exe. There you will find options to delete most of the things that are run on bootup.

    You might also try right-clicking on a file name in the Startup folder...you should see a Delete selection.

    <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> Thank you Michael and RHC, the Start/Run msconfig.exe was exactly the command line I needed, have already deleted what I wanted and bingo - all gone now. Thank you very much guys, I now have a clean sys tray for the first time in ages. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
