    I am running Windows XP and everytime I uncheck items in the startup list, they checked re-checked and re-included when I restart the computer. How can I make the changes to remove these programs from the startup list?

    thanks,
    Justin

    this isn't regarding my notebook but my desktop
    I was wondering how do you permenately disable some program from starting at startup?

    i have two that always start that I don't want
    1) PDSched.exe
    2)realsched.exe (well this one just stays on after i open real player)

    -ive gone to msconfig and none of them are there
    -i use System mechanic 5, and under the startup manager i have disabled the two
    -in start>all programs>startup there is nothing in there related to these two
    -i also use a program from sysmtem mechanic5 called Start up guard that prevents any programs that try to auto start.

    any ideas?
    thanks

    I believe "Perfect Disk" to be the best defragmenter. You should really look into it.
