log in to safe maode and then take this out from the registry.
Take it out from
hkey_currect_user\software\microsoft\windows\current version\run
hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\current version\run
Now see the startup directory also for this exe. delete it if it is present

Jacob?s correct in that you can remove references from those areas. There?s no need to do so in Safe Mode, though, unless this tlist app is malware of some kind. A quick Google search for it shows there?s a legitimate app which does data analysis so I?d presume it?s not malware.

Now, while you can always manually rip the settings out of the Registry, I don?t recommend doing so. The first thing to do is to investigate the program?s settings (or options or preferences, etc) for a reference to loading at Windows Startup or something similar. If that?s present, disable it. Otherwise the next time you run the app it?s just going to add itself back to the startup and you?re right back where you were.

If there is no setting for this that you can find then you can remove the entries manually. Most folks, however, aren?t comfortable going into the Registry. Even I, a well experienced tech, hesitate to go manually removing entries from the Registry if I have an alternate solution. I use a little app I fond a while back called Crap Cleaner. You can get it at http://www.ccleaner.com if you like. Disable the checkbox for Yahoo?s stuff during the install and it will work just fine.

Once you have CCleaner installed, click the Tools button on the side and click Startup. You then have the option of removing startup items from each possible location without the hassle of Regedit. Handy for the novice or expert as it?s a one-stop-startup-removal area. There are, I am sure, other apps than this which allow the same thing. CCleaner is just the one I use.
