Windows 7: Second month in a row with security updates disabling startup programs

Second month in a row with security updates disabling startup programs

Since October security updates and again now in November, I have had to reinstall Privatefirewall, Rainlendar and System Explorer to get them to run again at startup, WHY is Windows doing this?? Rainlendar is just a calendar program, Privatefirewall is of course a firewall, and I have no intention of not using it, and System Explorer is just an easier way to view running processes, none of these programs should be affected by any Windows security updates at all yet each time they are disabled and I have to go thru hell to get them enabled to run at startup again. This is getting ridiculous, particularly since there is no firewall enabled at all until I manually run Privatefirewall.

I posted this in the Windows Update forum since the problem happens after updates are installed, is there another forum to post it to where someone may have any ideas?

Windows Security Updates vs Third-Party Antivirus Programs
Sorry if I sound like an idiot, but I've been wondering for a while (or at least since I heard about Windows ending support for XP) - are both Windows built-in security and third-party antivirus necessary to protect a computer from infection? If so, why? Windows keeps sending me security patches...

Disabling some startup programs
I put two programs folder, but now they've disappeared from the folder and they still startup. They're not listed in the startup msconfig either. I actually want these programs to start minimized but I don't know how to do it.
