I cannot find the startup list of programs on one of the laptop computers having Windows Vista.  I thought I could poke through control panel and make a way to finding the list of startup programs, but I cannot.  I began to look in the Tutorials tab on the bleeping computer site, but not seeing on first couple of those pages, and search not giving any better, I ask here.  How do I find the startup programs list so I can try to disable one of the programs on a particular computer from startup up automatically when Windows starts?

Allen, thanks for the help, but I did not check that link yet, BUT ALSO I did an internet web search and found how to reach the startup list:   Start menu > type in "msconfig.exe", and pick the tab for Startup list.

 

Actually, that did not help me to take care of the problem for which I wanted the startup list, so I might be asking another question later on the forums.

I didn't tell you about msconfig because that utility should not be used to make permanent changes to startup items while Autoruns should. But okay, no problem.
