Hi, there!

I'm new to this forum (as of today), and I have studied quite a few of the topics to try finding a solution. No luck so far.

Here's the case (problem):
I have been using a D-Link DWL-G122 wireless USB adapter on my computer, and I recently replaced this with a different brand, that is supposed to work better. The D-Link software utility package and driver have been correctly uninstalled. So far, so good.
When studying the startup entries, however, I see that the following services connected with the D-Link adapter are still present:

AirGcfg.exe (utlilty)
WZCSLDR2.exe (ANI service)

For information - I do not have a D-Link router.

Now, I have checked and double checked that the software is completely removed and I have tried to remove the startup entries in several ways:

- CCleaner
- Registry Mechanics
- XP Repair Pro
- removed entries from the \...\CurrentVersion\Run-folder (both in normal mode and safe mode)
- searched the registry and removed associated D-Link entries
- un-checked entries in MSConfig
- Autoruns v8.6
- Startup Control Panel v 2.8

No succsess - those entries keep re-appearing. This triggers my curiosity, and is just a tad irritating...

First of all - anyone else experiencing the same? Is there any better software (free) that may solve this? If not, is there a way to permanently solve this? Thoughts?

My computer runs OK, though, and it is not an extremely urgent matter, but it is still very annoying. Hence, this post.

Thank you in advance, and excuse me if this specific topic has been discussed, or even solved, before (I haven't found it).

Try using AutoRuns to delete the startup entries (it's a free Microsoft utility).
