How to Remove the Selective Startup Popup?

Open the Start menu of the PC, and select Run.


Type regedit in the text area and press OK. The registry editor opens. 26319213-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-2.jpg Click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

26319213-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-5.jpg Expand SOFTWARE then Microsoft

Expand Windows then CurrentVersion, then Run. On the right hand panel of the registry editor there will appear a list of program items which are related to the startup of the PC.

26319213-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-14.jpg Locate the item called MSConfigReminder and select it. Go to the Editor's drop down Favorites menu and click add so that the editor will go straight to the item in future, should it ever be necessary.
  • Then, with the MSConfigReminder item still selected, press delete to remove it, and close the editor.

  • There is no need to save anything for the editor; it is saved automatically as it closes.
  • On next startup the offending pop-up will have gone.

I have Vista for Business on a computer. Suddenly the log on picture shows on the screen, but the computer says the user information is unavailable and won't let me log in!

This sounds like a failed update. Restart the computer and hit either F2 or F8 or possibly Tab or Delete once the splash screen comes up. This should give you a windows startup option for safe mode. Click Safe Mode with Networking and let the computer startup. This will bypass all current startup items and possible problematic services. Login and start up Task Manager. View startup items and look to see if anything is starting up that says "Windows Update" or if anything else stands out that shouldn't be there. Names that are random garbled letters, etc. Disable these for normal startup. Now click on control panel under start menu and go to windows update and see if any updates failed to install. If they did, disable install automatically in windows update.

After this go to "run" and type in msconfig. Click normal startup, hit apply, when the message that says "restart computer" pops up click yes and let it restart the computer normally.

You can disable it ->

start --- run
type msconfig and hit enter
go to startup tab and
press disable all (or uncheck the program you don't want to start up automatically) and
then press ok
then restart your computer

if not worked then perform another way

start --- all programs
double click on startup
there you can delete the files which you do not want to start automatically when windows starts...

if above methods are not working then do the following steps

a. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
b. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\ CurrentVersion\Winlogon
c. In the right pane, right-click Userinit, and then click Modify.
d. In the Edit String dialog box, type Windows installation C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe under Value data, and then click OK.
e. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

Automatic program start-up not wanted on my computer

Click on Start, the run. In the box type in msconfig.

Click on the startup tab. Uncheck each program you do not want to start up with your computer. Keep in mind that some items are required for startup for windows so don't uncheck anything you are not sure of.

Exit and restart. Once it restarts you'll get a message just click ok to exit out of that message and those programs will no longer start up with your computer.

Thanks and please take a brief moment to give this solution a rating of fixya.
