go start - run - msconfig - go to startup tab and remove the tick from everything except your virus checker and firewall etc. apply reboot and put tick in box left hand side and ok.

i am running win xp pro (forgot to say in question}
are instructions same

Instructions are the same, when you say it will not delete,... In what way will it not? Have you tried safe mode then deleting?

when i push remove in add/remove progs it does not go from the list
also there is no file size at the right hand side
