All of your startup programs are not in a particular folder.

I have used startupinspector for many years and it works on every version
of windows that I have run.
It is free and allows you to uncheck programs and process's that are
run at startup.

Of course to make any changes, the program must be run as administrator.

www dot windowstartup dot com

is their website.

In this case it's especially nice to have one which shows how to turn off Startup in the program first, since many will otherwise turn it back on if its merely deleted in msconfig.

Yet another reason to be thankful for the best Administrators of any site on the web.
