Unwanted program loaded during startup

By xanch ·
Got Win2000 Professional. For some reason an unwanted program(smut dialer) got added to my startup routine that appears on the program tray(lower right corner by clock). Can't find the program associated with it to delete using search & explorer. Where can I go that shows programs that are loaded during windows starts up? Thanks for your help!

You can start with going to Start/Programs/Administrative Tools/Computer Management... Click the plus sign next to System Information. Uner there you will see a folder that software environment and then Startup Programs. Check in there. Some body else might have more but at least its a start.

you may need edit register:

RUN
RUNONCE
RUNONCEEX

delete the software exe files in these key.

make sure do a backup of reg.
