After studying the BC tutorial and downloading Autoruns my first attempt to remove a Program from the Vista startup list resulted in "Autoruns Access Denied" dialog stating "Error changing item state: Access is denied" with option buttons "Run as Administrator" and "OK".

Clicking "Run as Administrator" produced a few screen flickers and nothing else - even the dialog box remained. To get rid of the dialog box I must click OK but still no changes in Autoruns!

I was logged in as Administrator from the start to test the Netstat -b command.

I have Vista HP, updated only two days ago.
