    Can't remove items from Task Manager-Startup


    Hello !
    When I was using windows 7 , I was able to delete an item from startup list ( MsConfig-Startup), using this Registry path:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg
    But on windows 10 there's no a such path.

    ( I don't want to disable , but to completely remove from Task Manager - Startup )

    How can I do it?

    Thank you !

    One way is to install CCleaner then use it's Tools/Startup to disable or delete entries.

    During installation, uncheck the option to install the Yahoo toolbar or any other scumware.

    I like that word "scumware" must put it in my dictionary. It is exact description of SW like that.

    Hello tiku, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    In addition, double check all startup item locations to see if it may be at one of them.
