Not a Really Big problem, I could not find the little run box in the Start column, so is Run replaced by a search, I was not able to find System Information in Vista, and went to run to bring it up but it was not there.

Also is there an average number of programs that run at start up ?

Like my XP has 32 started, I assume this means these are running, . .

would that be average ?

You can also hit start> all programs> accessories

You will also find the command prompt in accessories.

You're welcome Jove :huh:

Oh, btw you have asked about "programs that run at startup".
Are you talking about processes or programs that you use?
Many processes are required to run in order to let your machine work properly (I guess I have usually around 27-30 processes; but honestly I have no idea what the average is). Someone else might know more about this topic.
However, I would recommend you not to put any (or as few as possible) additional programs to the Automatic Startup folder or add the QuickStart option for them, because this all takes up a lot of resources of your system.

I was talking about services as they are listed in services, in the administrative tools, I am thinking from the definitions I recently looked into that the processes are function applied to programs, so, I'm not sure I understand that since, a Program would be something like, (a software) MS Word, and I am guessing, . . like Paint, therefore these if I am correct are programs, again, . . like AVG, or my Comodo Fire wall, these I find both in msconfig as start ups, and in services, therefore, if processes are applied to the programs, what would an example of this be ?

What are the services ? They seem to be programs, . . correct ?
