Go to "Start"---> "Run" and type MSCONFIG... Will give you a checkable autoexe window...
If you want to do a selective startup, use the startup configuration utility.
start->run-> (and then type) msconfig
The last tab has your startup programs.
thak you for this all --
-- DAYUM, was there ever some JUNK in the TRUNK -- !!
You can also drag and drop a shortcut of any program into your startup folder.
XP has one too.
It's under your main drive letter -> documents and settings -> your profile -> start menu -> programs -> startup.
Just put a shortcut there and it'll be open on bootup.
And the other stuff that is not in the startup folder can be found in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVerison/Run
Often times this is where Spyware will be called from upon startup. Also stuff like your virus scan and other utilities are called from here. Use 'regedit' from the Start-->Run--> prompt to edit the registry. MAKE A BACKUP first.
thanks for this, chi -- will look at it too --
Beat me to it
