Im having the same problem. I went to msconfig and to startup . there is no Toshiba flash cards in the list. There are 2 other Toshiba programs running, There is no "msconfig" actually, it only shows "system config" when you type that in, and then when you click "startup" it comes up "open task manager" . Next to the "startup" tab there is one called "services" . In that it gives the option to check or uncheck running programs. only thing that shows up is "Toshiba opticle disk drive service" and "Toshiba eco Utility service" ?? Really wish I could delete this "Toshiba flash cards" But cant find it.? Every time I try to Restart my laptop it says this program is running. Help please . and Thankyou!
Ok, so mine is set to "selective startup" looks like I need to switch it to "normal startup" ?? ...update: tryed that and did nothing. Those dang Toshiba flash cards are relentless! I wish I could make them just go away. Tried restarting my computer and it still comes up that the Toshiba flash cards are open and preventing restart. So I try to restart it anyway and it does no good. Flash cards are still there every time I go to restart
They could be loaded from Startup menu, instead of Registry entry.
There's a Microsoft tool called Autoruns, part of SysInternals package. It might help you locating the culprit (but be very careful what you do).
Actually I was referring to checking the "Start Up" tab in there. Not what mode. However, if it isn't showing there, then I would definitely check where Alabalcho stated and I totally agree you need to be 'really careful' changing anything in there. In either place actually.
