Nope, don't think so.
In a previous discussion, it was suggested that one should simply un-check the registry startup items that they didn't want to start. Is there a way to simply delete the item from the list?, or do I have to hunt down the file and delete it? I'd rather not delete a file which I may decide to re-introduce to the startup list later. Also - a little tip for other newbies out there. If you want to make changes to the registry, always make a back-up copy before making changes. Here's how: Start / Run / type in regedit / OK / File / Export / Name the file, and choose a location. If problems arise after making changes to the registry, you can restore the previous registry simply by clicking on this backup file. This procedure works for Win XP Home edition - I don't know about other OS's
