Hello again. A thank you to Bleeping Computer for the guidance of getting my laptop running last month.
I think I did something wrong and messed up my Toshiba Satellite L505 when trying to get rid of the c**p.
The laptop now is running well but I noticed a lot of junk programs that are meaningless to me. My question is how to get rid of them
and not destroy my machine? I saw your list of undesirable start programs and it said if unsure how to remove them, to please ask for assistance.
I "updraded" to Win 7 Professional.
I have a dds.txt file, but can't find how to upload it. The dds.txt file may help. Last time I was using HJT when things turned South.
msconfig is a diagnostic utility and should only be used as such. You should follow the suggestion to use Autoruns. Alternatively, you can use a very simple program such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml) to manage your startup programs and you should manage services from START - RUN - services.msc
