Very complete, clear guidance. One suggestion: explicitly note that you _cannot_ use Start > "All Programs" > "Search programs and files" to find Startup folder.

But you can find the Startup folder via "Search programs and files".

See Method Two, Option One or Option Two in the tutorial.

There is no need to click on "All Programs", but it does not hurt to do so.

Perhaps your post was requesting that the tutorial explicitly note that you _cannot_ find either of the Startup folders via the "Search programs and files" field if one merely enters startup as the search criteria. The search field's name even implies that it won't find folders :-)

Why is there no Control Panel/Programs/Change Startup..
..Programs anymore? I liked how Vista had that feature. Now it seems the only way to disable startup programs is by 'msconfig' right?
