I am trying to stop this Microsoft product id decoder window pop up in my Windows 7 pc. Where and what item in the registry can I delete to stop the window from popping up during start up? Your help and assistance will be greatly appreciated.
Registry entry for Microsoft product id decoder pop up window in 7
If this is a startup issues, first you need to check is if this software is added in the C:Users<yourusername>AppDataRoamingMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuProgramsStartup or just click Start>All Programs>Startup for a shortcut.
Make sure that it is not listed in this folder, delete it otherwise so it would not start on Windows startup
To check the registry, run regedit by hitting win+R in your keyboard or go to Start>Run and type regedit
Expand from registry editor HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Run
Backup if you prefer to be safe before deleting any entry by highlighting the entry you want to delete then click File>Export to export the registry entry to a *.reg file which you can upload back if necessary.
Delete the entry for your preferred software to disable auto run, check also RunOnce if it is listed there also.
Expand and search the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Run
Delete that specific registry data here also if needed.
