    GoPro Importer aka "Program" can't be removed from startup


    A friend installed some GoPro drivers on my computer to import his video. I uninstalled everything he installed when he left, but I can't get rid of "Program" that links to a GoPro Importer program in my Start Up menu. It's really annoying me. I tried going in and finding all the Registry entries that GoPro left behind, and once I deleted them all manually and went to import my new reg file, it gave me an error. I've provided a screenshot of both culprits.

    Any idea how I can get around this regedit error or just remove this "Program" from my Start Up list? Maybe I'm OCD, but it really bugs me.

    I should also add that I checked the Process list to see if any GoPro instances were left behind running and couldn't find anything. I'm out of ideas, which is why I'm posting this. Thanks in advance.

    Use Revo to strip them out of the registry, etc.
