    Another was you can do this through windows is by opening the run window:

    start menu>run

    and then typing msconfig and then selecting that tab about startup, you can deselect everything you don't want to startup with windows.

    Also for those who disable stuff in msconfig there is also a cleaner for those stubborn ones.

    I also use StartupCPL, very good. You can either disable or delete the entry.

    hkcu means it is done through the registry. startup folder is like literally in your start --> all programs --> startup folder

    Another good one is Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel
    http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

    Is there a difference between something booting from the start menu folder and starting through HKCU? Does one boot before the other or something?

    I am rather shocked at how much is actually starting up. I thought I had my startup slimmed down, but I guess I was wrong, way wrong.

    Tired of things opening on bootup?

    Just found this nifty little thing MS has that finds every startup event anywhere in the system. It's called 'Autoruns for Windows' and you can get it here:
