Download Windows Install Cleanup from here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301 Install it and run it. It will list installed programs and enable you to remove the remnants of uninstalled programs.
You can also (I recommend) Google Codestuff Starter and install it. It will list everything running at startup. You can use it if that program is still showing up on boot up.

I just want to say hello to everyone here. I'm very glad that I stumbled upon this site. It is very informative. This would be my first post since I only joined this forum today. So please allow me to post a question asking for your help that hopefully will ease my mind and possibly relieve my frustrations. I have very limited knowledge of how computer works. So please excuse my ignorance.
O.K...I will try my best to make it as clear as I can.

This is where I need help. I downloaded the Vista SP1 Sidebar v6.0.6001.16549 to my XP from some site I found through Google. They said it would be compatible. However; when I was asked for the location to save & extract the file, I selected the desktop since it was a .RAR file. Everything went smoothly until I decided to delete it, for it slows the Startup down quite a bit. So I deleted it through the Control Panel>Add/Remove Program, Program Files, Temp File, & on the desktop itself but to no avail. Everytime I restart my computer, all of the extracted files reappear on my desktop regardless of how many times I delete them. Please advise me of what I should do next, maybe try the regedit route? I hope not. I'm very frustrated and in desperate need of any help from the members of this forum.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in Advance.
