    I have a entry in the start-programs files for a program that is not there. I have looked at everything in the computer and it is not found. The program is not shown when I go into the explore files. The program is a print program for CD covers. (Media FACE) The program is installed and working. But there is a second entry for the program that has 11 after the title. When I highlight this entry, the computer hangs up for about 60 seconds, and then goes back to working. I have removed the program and no effect, reinstalled it and still the same problem. How can I delete this second entry?

    If the entry doesn't lead to anything, (check this by right clicking the entry, properties, and see where it points) or if it points to the existing program, then just right click it and delete. :)

    Problem is that when I highlight the program it lock up the computer. As long as the program is highlighted nothing works.

    Found that if I left the entry highlighted and waited for 60 or more second the files to the right showed up. There was an unstall icon and I uninstalled to program. When I returned to the start-programs the program was still there but when highlighted it could be deleted.
    Have no idea what happened or why but the problem seems to be solved for the time being.
    Thanks for your guidance.
