Programs that start with Windows

By gregory.dvorkin ·
How can I determibe what programs start when WIndows starts? Is there any other way to define shuch a program besides defining a service or entry in startup folder. I know that there are some spyware removers detect and report the software that starts with Windows but I wander if there is a way to get such information from Windows files or settings.

Have you tried msconfig??

Click start, run, and type msconfig and then on the startup tab.

If you have windows 2000 the msconfig file can be downloaded.

Thanks a lot. Some of the programs there are easily recognizable. I know that I installed them. But some do not. Is there a way to determine what programs are from Microsoft (legal Windows finction)?
