Thumbs down Msconfig problem

i guess this qualifies as an "operating system" problem:

my startup is messed up!

very few things start up, but why do files startup that dont exist?

"zlclient" is zone alarm internet security (antivirus, antispyware, and firewall)

how do i "delete" an msconfig entry?

open regedit go to \hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\cur rentversion\run

You won't be able to get rid of ctfmon, it'll just keep coming back until you uninstall office.
