How do I get rid of this?

When my computer boots up I get a file that says:
Roaming>Microsoft>Windows>Start Menu>Program>Startup>Windows Life
Then is says: This folder is empty.
How do I get rid of this folder? I uninstalled Windows Live, but I still have this file at startup.

The link below should help.

Here is a link that might be useful: How to stop Windows Live Messenger from popping up on Startup.

RE: How do I get rid of this?

I tried the things in the link sent by chemocurl, but nothing seems to work. I have Windows 7 Home Premium if that helps.

Roaming>Microsoft>Windows>Start Menu>Program>Startup>Windows Live

Then it says "This folder is empty."

RE: How do I get rid of this?

Click your win7 Start button
All Programs

Anything in that startup folder starts up when you login to your desktop. Or start the desktop if automatically logged in.

See if there is a Windows Live folder there inside that Startup folder.. if so delete it.
