cannot remove from start up file or registry

  bax 05:39 07 Feb 2005

I deleted 3 programs using Add & remove in Control panel- Executive software's diskeeper, Trojan Hunter and Trojan Guard.

They keep reappearing in the start up file. I delete them from that file, delete all registry keys that I can find, but they keep coming back.

Any ideas as to what I can do to get rid of them forever as I really do not want them trying to start each time I start the computer?

Download, update and run some or all of the above.

Clear out all your temporary files (temp and temperory internet) as well as something to do with the progs could be lurking in there

Also turn off System Restore before removing the programs in case they are putting themselves back from there.

REinstall them and try removing them again,dont diable them in the startup file run the uninstaller should get rid of them,why you wont to get rid of diskeeper? its way better than the windows defrag.

I too have DiskKeeper 9 and I agree, it is loads better than Windows defrag.
Worth every penny in my opinion.
