Ok New question...........


Has all startup entries form my programs. If I want to delete them all i just highlight and delete, but they come back.

If I just delete the whole RUN folder it recreates it and fills it backup with the startup information. Where the hell is it getting the information from.

I have checked for Adaware, Spybot, CWshredder, Hijak,Stinger AV, Nod32 AV.

Funny thing if I use Hijack in safe mode and delete the startup information - closed down up backup and they are all back.

You may need to change the premission for the Key. If it is set to read to need to change it to Full access. Then this should allow you to delete the key.

OK here it is...
Caution!! Modifiing the Registy can damage your system!
If you do not know what you are doing, DO NOT modify you Registry. You can damage your registry to the point you will need to reinstall Windows. Backup your registry efore you make any changes. Have one copy in your C:\ and one on a floppy or cd as backup.
