Default startup programs

There's a program I don't want starting automatically when my computer starts up. And another one I want to start automatically but doesn't.

How do I make this happen? I have a Startup folder and this program (RegistryCleaner) that I don't want starting automatically is not in there. Not sure why it keeps starting. Don't see a way to disable this.

THanks!

Default Re: startup programs

Win+R (to bring up the Run dialog) -> "msconfig" (without quotes) -> OK -> Startup tab

See if you can find it in that list.
