The listings of Startup Items require that the "file name" be known. I see no file names STARTUP in the System Configuration Utilty. How do I find them?

Welcome to BC zammer.
I see you tried to make your lettering very large. This is not neccessary sence most of the members have very good eye, and would make it very difficult to read.
Second, The System Configuration Utility only show processes that are started in the Startup section or have been stopped from starting. In msconfig the Startup tab is the second from the top right.
What are you extactly looking for?

The filename is also usually found within the command section of the startup listing in msconfig. I think your better off with Autoruns though as it makes the info easier to see.
