creative product registration keeps popping up and I can't get rid of it(7 posts)
I just barely figured this out so here's what I did:
Open Task Manger (Ctrl+alt+delete)
Go to the processes tab
You need to find 2 processes that will be running
-"inetreg.exe" which will be under the description of "product registration"
-the second one I can't remember its name but it started with a "ct" or "cr" and was under the description of "registration"
Right Click on the "ct"/"cr" under "registration" and click on end process
Then do the same thing with "inetreg.exe"
That's it, you're done!
That's right MB with using Task Manager. It shuts them down, but doesn't stop them from starting again upon reboot. The place to go take out those determined Startup apps is System Configuration using http://www.lafn.org/webconnect.....NINDEX.HTM as a guide so one will not accidently shutdown a needed Windows process. I belive all versions of Windows will scold you when you make changes like that with a prompt after rebooting, but at the bottom of the prompt there's a place to tick "Don't ask me this again" or something to that nature. If not ticked Windows (use to in XP) will check most of all the other unchecked functions plus the ones you just unchecked and change your Startup back to Normal instead of Custom. A good place to get aquainted with, especially for slower machines and or pesky apps that want to be in Startup...Garry
