    I had two instances of HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Current Version and that
    is all I can see, in Startup msconfig. I'm not exactly sure how they arrived with me, I have deleted one of them from the registry.
    I would dearly love to get rid of the second one but I don't know which entry to pick in the registry.The other thing is I run XPhome.
    I once clicked on a members URL in his specs, he was from this board. I could be wrong. Does anyone have any idea how I could delete this from the registry. It's an eyesore for me when I go there. TIA. :)

    I read your post, but there's no way I'd delete something that large without having a GHOST backup, it sure would gum up the works if the one that was left wasn't the right one! :D

    HKCU is a Registry branch and you can't go deleting parts of your Registry.

    It's not clear what exactly you're referring to.

    Is it something in Msconfig/Startup?

    What is the name of the item that's bothering you?
