One note, for any of the methods mentioned to work, you have to have the item selected in msconfig's startup or it won't show in spybot or the registry.

Wow, How Cool was that!! I've been trying to figure out how to do that for years. No big deal just a big annoyance! Duplications and the Like. Ya do need to have everything checked for them to appear in either scenario though as you both said. Thanks Dudes!!!
