    Deleting something at startup

    How do I do it?

    I have created a .BAT file to delete a few startup rubbish found in: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    However, this has had no effect whatsoever. The BAT file contains the following entries:

    Code:
    del "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Microsoft Office.ink" /f
    del "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\SMART Board Tools.ink" /f
    Can anyone tell me where it is that I am going wrong with it?

    You have the extension ".ink" on those two paths, not ".lnk" as I assume you intend.
