    Friend download Autoruns.
    Let it complete scanning and click the Services tab.
    Find the name of the "bad" service in the left column ("Autorun Entry").
    Right click and select "Jump to". You'll go right to the proper entry in the registry to edit it. You need to see if you have programmes loading during boot process which might be changed to on demand.
    The best tool to do this is Autoruns (freeware) from Microsoft.
    With Autoruns you can uncheck an item, which disables it from starting, or you can right click an item and then delete it. If you uncheck you can recheck to re-enable the item. It is a much safer approach than editing the Registry and better than using msconfig.
