Folder & Programs Open on Start Up


D

Dek0660

When I start a user profile in XP, the "Common" folder opens - this happens
for each and every XP user profile. When I open my profile - only mine - the
"Dell Media Experience" start page also opens. Following instructions Ramash
gave other people, I have run the XP Startup Log Programs Tracker and am
posting the results here.

Can anyone pinpoint what I need to change in the registry? In advance,
thanks for your help.

Removing the PCMService Value from your local machine Run Key as well as the
Dell Support Value in the current user Key would stop the Dell Support at
startup. That said, there is nothing in either Run Key that you need to
start Windows. I would Export both Keys to *.REG files, and delete
everything. You can run the REG file later to restore everything and then
try each item one at a time till you are happy with the result.

Start once without anything, and test some of your apps, like ITunes and the
other to see if you are happy without the startup stuff. Most people don't
like too many background tasks running, since it impacts performance, but
you are the one to do the choosing. These things are installed by the setup
programs of the things you install, and often are only there to speed the
startup of the app. Mostly, they will be started as needed when you open
something.

Your problem is that the "AppleSyncNotifier" value does not have quotes.


Add quotes as follows:

AppleSyncNotifier C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\bin\AppleSyncNotifier.exe
AppleSyncNotifier "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\bin\AppleSyncNotifier.exe"

MBkLogOnHook C:\Program Files\McAfee\MBK\LogOnHook.exe
MBkLogOnHook "C:\Program Files\McAfee\MBK\LogOnHook.exe"

mcagent_exe C:\Program Files\McAfee.com\Agent\mcagent.exe
mcagent_exe "C:\Program Files\McAfee.com\Agent\mcagent.exe"

mm_server C:\Program Files\MUSICMATCH\MUSICMATCH Jukebox\mm_server.exe
mm_server "C:\Program Files\MUSICMATCH\MUSICMATCH Jukebox\mm_server.exe"

Weather C:\Program Files\AWS\WeatherBug\Weather.exe 1
Weather "C:\Program Files\AWS\WeatherBug\Weather.exe" 1

WMPNSCFG C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\WMPNSCFG.exe
WMPNSCFG "C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\WMPNSCFG.exe"
