Removing Startup Programs from Registry

By qhcomputingny ·
Hello,

I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to remove programs from starting up in Windows 2000, by editing the registry. I have done it before, but don't have a clue as to where I wrote down the registry entries. I know you can remove some programs from the start menu to stop them from starting, but to remove the ones that aren't in the start menu are the ones I want to get at.

Thanks in advance..

I get down past CurrVer and I don't see any entries that say SION\RUN or SION alone for that matter. Is there something else I should be seeing here?
Let me know.

Thanks

That should be "CurrentVersion" etc.

You know that TechRepublic may input spaces from time-to-time... they also input carraige returns at the end of long sentences without spaces.
