How does one get an entry from the Autoruns list into the search window in the Startup database?

I've read the topic How To Use The Startup Database but the step I seem to have missed is between here Now that you have an understanding of how the Startup Database is laid out, and here lets move on to how to query the startup programs on your computer to the database.

I assume by query you mean to type or paste something into the search window. I have tried this every which way I can, copying/pasting/manually typing and every time I get the reply Search Term Not Found.

How exactly do you get something from the list in Autoruns into the database search window?

The help file that comes with Autoruns appears to be blank so its a bit of a mystery.

Apparently there's not a single file on my computer that is in the Startup Programs Database. It always comes back with Search Term Not Found. I've tried dozens of them.

I did get Autoruns help to work but there's still no joy in Mudville.

Can you provide an example? And what browser are you using?
That way we can duplicate the process and possibly determine what is happening; the startup database is so large that something should come back.

Well...now that its working for me I don't know what to say. I deleted Autoruns for the third time and tried tried again and now its working.

I like a good mystery but this is nuts.
