weird symbols on my start up

  Wizz198303 10:38 16 Nov 2004

Hi, after trying to clean up my start up files to help improve my pc's speed I found two files no words or numbers just symbols, about 5 little squares. I disabled them, restarted the system and i got an alert saying that it could not find these "boxes" (the file). Anyways i re-enabled them only to find out that another two files identical was next to the original, but was already enabled.

The alerts told me if i dont have that file anymore to delete it from the registry, but i dont know where that is. So im asking for help.

The plus side is my computer starts up alot faster after disabling most of the crap on there.

If you don't know where the Registry is, best leave it alone!

Instead, download and run click here

It will find hundreds of entries first time, so don't be alarmed.

If you use CCleaner, then make a note of any passwords that you may have on your computer.CC sometimes as a tendency to delete these. The product otherwise is first class and a well recommended programme for getting rid of all the rubbish.Best of all its free.
