Run a sfc scan, Jacee or do a repair install.

And why, may I ask, do you need SP1 RC?

I've done a sfc scan and ran a startup repair, which said no problems found.

I'm Beta testing SP1 RC ... I did the same with Vista, Sp2 for Vista, MSE, Windows 7 and IE9.

Oh, OK. Maybe you can flush out the missing startup items- uncheck them in msconfig, reboot, then check them again, reboot. Also, same with the startup folder. You already know how to do it but heres the tut- methods 2 and 3.

Startup Programs - Change
