I have a picture here:

I looked in both HKLM and HKCU keys, but nothing shows up. I looked in the Shared Tools key as well - nothing. Any thoughts?

FWIW: Msconfig is not meant to be a startup manager...but something seems to be wrong with what yours reflects. Although it won't show all registry startups, it should reflect some.

I would try running chkdsk /r.

There are any number of tools that do a better job as startup managers, if that is what your intent is.

AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx , Logon tab only.

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

Startup Inspector - http://www.windowsstartup.com/startupinspector.php

I had things just the way I wanted, but then this all showed up. None of that information was in the Startup folder. That was blank. Anyways, I rolled the system back 24 hours or so via System Restore, which fixed it.

Just one of those things, I guess.

Problem 'solved'. Thanks for the replies, guys. :)
