If this is the wrong section to post, could you please advise me on which area to post this question to.

I wanted to know how to delete programs from the windows start up list. (misconfiguration) start up.

I have lime wire on there and i have deleted it from my computer but it still shows up on start up.

Any help??

You can use any number of programs to manage/disable/remove startup items in Windows.

A few follow.

Starter (for Startups - http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/Starter.shtml

Startup Control Panel - http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

Startup Inspector for Windows - http://www.windowsstartup.com/

The best program, IMO, requires a bit more understanding than the above...since it will list ALL items/drivers/processes which begin at boot, in addition to listing the items we normally consider as startups. If you intend to try it, I suggest that definitely read the directions before you begin...and realize that the items normally considered to be startups are on the tab marked Logon.

I personally use Startup Inspector, one of the best and most useful utilities I've downloaded in the last year.
