Hi sticky74,

 

Welcome to Microsoft Answers.


If you are referring to any non-Microsoft product or utility then please contact the vendor for further
details on the compatibility issues.
Also Microsoft does not provide any utility to “Clean/Delete Msconfig Unchecked Entries”.

You may manually try to remove the start up items from registry if required-

Click your start button then select RUN, in the Run box that opens type this simple command: REGEDIT then you get the windows registry editor:

First thing you will want to do is Click on the "+" signs to expand the sections and follow down to each of these two keys:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]

These are the two most common registry keys which load applications at start up.

The Tree on the Left is your navigation; the display on the right is the list of applications loading at startup. You may remove the start up items from here.

Registry Disclaimer:
Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
