ok, lets see if I can explain this correctly: Working on a windows 98 machine. I have unchecked some startup entries in the msconfig utility. Now I want to delete those entries from the list. I don't want to see them in the startup tab of msconfig anymore. Unlike XP where I could go into the registry and delete them from the startupreg key, 98 does not have a startupreg key. 98 does have a run key but does not act the same as the starupreg key in XP. Maybe I'm missing something.
