I know this isn't a programming question, but I didn't know where to go.
I can't remove items from STARTUP
in the STARTUP tab, programs that load at start up are listed.
I can check the box so they load at startup, or
I can uncheck the box so they don't load,
BUT, I want to remove items and I haven't been able to find a way to do that.
Once a week Win reconfigures it's self some how
and checks all the boxes in the STARTUP list.
Also, a smut site sent me junk mail that altered my c:win98system.dat & user.dat files. (along with everything else)
and now my internet explorer has their site listed everywhere,
it decided that it should be my home site,
and it's worse than a virus.
Where do I turn them in ? (I tried their site and there's no contact addr where I can ask for civility.)
How can I get that junk removed from my system. ?
Is there a Win program that allows me to edit my system.dat & user.dat files???
(they are system,hidden,read_only files.)
plz help #1

Thanks much xkgdiam
Your reply fixed the problems that plauged me for years.
The key to the fix turned out to be your advice and the regedit string search,
which check the regs for all the occurances of my problems.
They were scattered about and also where you stated they would be.
