I,m in the process of cleaning up my system after a very near
miss. I want to delete programs from the startup menu but I'm not sure how to permanently delete them.
I know I can use MSConfig to uncheck the programs but then I constantly get the pop-up window.
Is there any other way to delete them.

If you want to permently remove them from your system you can do that from the Add\Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

If you just want to stop them from running at startup, go into the individual programs options, and see if there's a way to disable them from running at startup?

Do you use Spybot S&D?
If so, it has a Startup Manager.
Open Spybot.
On the tool bar, at the top left, click Mode.
Select Advanced Mode.
A box will open, asking if you want to go to Advanced Mode, click Yes.
On the left, at the bottom, click the Tools bar.
Select System Startup.

This lists all the programs set to run at startup.
Information on each entry can be obtained by highlighting the entry (single click), then clicking on the set of double arrows on the far right.
If there's no information on the entry, you can check it with the Startup List located on the tab at the top of the forum pages.

Always research an entry, before stopping it.
Stopping the wrong entry could cripple a necessary program, causing problems.

Remove the check from anything you want to stop from running at startup.
If you have TeaTimer running, a box will pop up asking if you want to allow this change.
Click Allow change.
Do this for every entry you want to stop running at startup.
When finished, close Spybot.

If you don't use Spybot, a good, free program, that just manages startups, is Startup Control Panel.
