I would not advise using reg-edit seeing as you can really screw up your system.

How ever: If you do decided to go that rout:

Try looking under under

current user and Local Machine

Software -> microsoft -> widnows -> Run and Run Once

msconfig is/was not designed to manage your startup list. It was intended for testing purposes only. I would suggest using a startup manger such as Autoruns to manage what you want to start upon bootup. By no means is Autoruns the only one. There are several to choose from and I'm sure others will contribute their favorites.

Newb4Life and Animal

thanks for the replys, sure do appreciate them.
i knew when i was fooling around in msconfig that i should not be there, but when i googled them every one
was talking about unchecking in msconfig.
well i got autorun and was wondering if one of you fine folks would tell me if i unchecked the ones circled in red, would that disable them (attach)?
thanks again for your help
harley

PS: are there anything else that you can see that i might could uncheck?

Personally...I suggest unchecking everything that has nothing to do with Microsoft/Windows, firwall protection, or AV protection.

None of those other items needs to load/run at startup, including the Intel item.

I would disable, not remove.

As for me:

If you don't want to go the route he suggested, I would keep the java update counsel because if you are anything like me you probably wont be checking updates for that one anytime soon, but I would go ahead and disable the adobe speed launch app, quicktime, and apparently your pc pitstop is missing files... so I would go ahead and delete that one all together. If you decide to re-install it I would still decide to dissable it.

You might get a few more suggestions as well but those are just mine.

FWIW: Disabling a startup item does not prevent a program from running...it merely prevents it from running before it's needed by the system/owner and launched manually, as most programs are.

As for Java...I believe updated versions arise for the same reason that Windows critical updates arise. Someone has found a way to exploit the code previously written. So...IMO, users should always check for updates of same, just as they check for critical updates to XP.
