Get rid of those annoying little applets that keep loading on your taskbar.

Do you want to get rid of some annoying little applet or other program that keeps loading up in your taskbar, but...

you just don't know where its loading from? If you've already checked in the your startup folder and haven't found anything, look in the following places:

  • C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersDesktopStartup
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRunServices
