Start up - multiple identical programs loading

by mono / November 3, 2004 9:04 AM PST


Recently when my comp starts up it has been running 2 of the same programs for 3 of the programs I have automaticaly loading on startup, they are ObjectDock, Samurize and Rainlender. So after starting up I will find two running programs of each in the system tray.

Ive looked at startup in MSConfig and its shows that Samurize, ObjectDock and Rainlender all have 2 load up areas one for "Common Startup" and another for "Startup" ive tried removing one then the other and finally both at separate times (after a restart) and all that does is stop the programs loading at startup complely.

I can't seem to figure it out. Any help you be great cause im really in a bind with this one.

(oh and if it helps ive only got one user account on the computer which is the administrator)

I've been really busy and only just got around to trying out what was suggested by rameshs in his earlier post (thanks for trying to help). Sadly the shell folder changes in the registry didn't work and the previously mentioned programs still boot up as before. I don't understand why :S. Any help would be great. (Refer to my first post for info)

Thanks Rik
