    If you're using Windows 2000, that Run command won't work; MS didn't include it in 2K for whatever reason. Try Startup Control Panel.

    If you really want to know what's going on at start-up, use AutoRuns

    get regcleaner here: http://www.worldstart.com/weekly-dow...cleaner4.3.htm and check the startup tab. Remove the ones you don't need.

    I find the simple programs like Regcleaner or Ccleaner easier to use . All the Utility Programs seem to have a start up editor . I'm confused tho why can't you delete them , Is it Spy ware ?



    Or if its a program like Msn or Yahoo you can disable in tools /options .
