Registry Editing Tips

Searching For Start-up Programs

You have searched for them at the StartUp folder. You have search for them in your System.ini file. Yet still no instances of the pesky programs that loads at startup. Simple, some of them are still stored in the registry. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version. Under that, there are 2 keys named Run & RunOnce. Another place is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version. Under that branch, search for keys named Run, RunOnce, RunOnceEx, RunServices & RunServicesOnce.

Once you find it, it is advisable not to delete the string. Instead, just clear away the value. Nicely done!
