I've used that program for some while now and found it very useful for stopping those programs that automatically place themselves into the start menu - most of them totally useless at that time.

You do have to be careful using it, though. It tells you what is and is not safe to remove but you can, if you're determined, stop anything in the startup with, no doubt, disastrous results.

Maybe start a new thread.
Adding to a 5 year old thread does not help.
Just tick the square and press the resolved button and then just open a new thread.
