In addition to Google:

Startup Programs Database - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/

Startups - Contents - http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_content.php

FWIW: Msconfig is the wrong tool to use to manage startups. Several better tools include the following:

Startup Control Panel - http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

Startup Inspector for Windows - http://www.windowsstartup.com/

AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx
