I find on the Startup Tab of Systems Configuration Utility that there are four programs listed that are no longer on my computer and that were viruses, that's why they are not on my computer any more. But they are still listed on the Startup tab on Systems Configuration Utility. Is there a way to get them off the Startup tab on Sys. Con. Utility? Why would Sys. Con. Utility list programs not on the computer anyhow? These were viruses so there is a little concern but more then that the computer still recommends to have them on at startup? Any ideas?
I'm pretty sure that they are not on the computer any more but I kind of don't even want them listed sense they were viruses. Please let me know if you know how to remove them from this registry. Thank you.

A better and safer approach would be to submit a HJT log to make sure they are not still there, at least I'd feel better about recommending any registry changes knowing for sure that you have an uninfected machine, John. Welcome to BC... it seems from your multiple posts you can learn some things here. :thumbsup:
