This is a list of my startup programs. The 2 files circled come up as not found when I boot up and I have to click OK to get the computer to continue the boot. I have unchecked them but the configuration window will come up during the boot process and I'd rather just have a normal boot. Is there anyway to delete these files. I can't even seem to find them.
Couple of ways to do this...
Rclick the AppInit_DLLS Value name, choose Modify or Modify Binary Data, sweep your cursor across the data field to highlight and choose Delete.
Better still is to create this batch file and run it - it will expose hidden values in AppInit_DLLS data, and expose any hidden value names:
Save these two lines in a notepad as query.bat to your desktop, dclicking it will pop rq.txt.
Then you could delete that \Windows subkey and add it back with this reg file [attached] of the default Currentversion\Windows subkey. Save all the content via Notepad as Windowsdefault.reg [no .txt extension], then dclick the file to merge it; a msg about success should pop. If it does not, then rclick the file, choose Merge.
