Default Can I change files names in MSCONFIG?

I installed a keylogger to keep track of the kids on the PC.
It hides itself very well, but shows up under MSCONFIG/Startup.
Is there a way of changing the file name here to something less conspicious than 'FamilyKeyLogger'? The oldest boy is pretty smart & may find it there!
Thanks.

You may have to change the actualy file name and info for that to work but that may cause the program not to work.

Dont trust you kids. Only a kid would say that.

He is doing it for their own good furgy so back off.

If the program is any smart then it will not allow the kids to do anything with it. Some programs out there will not allow you to kill the task and if it is unchecked from startup then it wont matter since it will override it.

Teens need porn, it's as simple as that. OK, make sure they're not doing sick wrong things but on the other hand don't be intrusive, if I found out my dad had been spying on me back in the day I'd have been pretty narked. If you really have to do anything set up a web tracker. Reading your kids conversations is as bad as listening to their phone calls.

Sorry, had to be said.
