What is the file that the msconfig startup tab corresponds..

When you look at the Startup tab of msconfig in Windows 98, what file
does that tab correspond to? What is the file that actually contains
this startup information?

Thanks,
Larry

    Soem may be from the "Startup" menu accessable through the "Start"
    menu or the folder \WINDOWS\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp. Usually,
    most are contained in the registry in the various "Run" keys.

    The places Win9x uses to load at Startup:

    -the load= and run= lines in the win.ini
    -the [386Enh] section of the system.ini
    -C:\WINDOWS\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp
    -C:\Windows\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    -the registry keys
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce\Setup
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx

    startup information, msconfig can gather information form all of these, and
    probably others, mvp Gary Terhune's
    http://www.grystmill.com/articles/cleanboot.htm may contain the information
    you need, even if you dont know you need it yet

    config.sys
    autoexec.bat
    win.ini
    system.ini
    start menu/programs/startup
    registry settings both general and user specific in multi user systems
    hkey/etcterera ..... /run
    ditto ../runonce
    and registry settings pertaining only to specific programs that may have
    their own startup keys.

    http://www.pcmag.com/ 's StartupCop has "undo", and it is more than a
    combination of "START, Run, MSInfo32, Software Environment, Startup
    Programs" and "START, Run, MSConfig, Startup tab". It can even do a
    permanent delete. You may create multiple "profiles" of Startup items.

    ..........Start.....of a StartupCop help screen.............
    Windows loads startup items from three locations in the Registry, two
    lines in WIN.INI, and two folders. Observation reveals that it always
    loads the seven groups in the same order. Here they are, in order:

    1. Registry (Machine Service) - Each value in the Registry key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
    defines a startup item. The value's data string is the command to be
    executed at startup.
    2. Win.ini (Load=) - The value of the Load= key in the [Windows] section
    of WIN.INI consists of one or more startup program names, separated by
    semicolons. Neither long filenames nor command-line arguments may be
    used. (Windows NT users - see note below)
    3. Win.ini (Run=) - The value of the Run= key in the [Windows] section
    of WIN.INI consists of one or more startup program names, separated by
    semicolons. Neither long filenames nor command-line arguments may be
    used. (Windows NT users - see note below)
    4. Registry (Machine Run) - Each value in the Registry key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run defines
    a startup item. The value's data string is the command to be executed at
    startup.
    5. Registry (Per-User Run) - Each value in the Registry key
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
    defines a startup item. The value's data string is the command to be
    executed at startup.
    6. Common Startup Group - Each shortcut in the common startup group (by
    default, C:\Windows\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup) is launched
    at startup. This group does not appear on the Start menu. Some Windows
    installations will not have a common startup group.
    7. Startup Group - Each shortcut in the Start menu's startup group (by
    default, C:\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup) is launched at startup.

    Startup Cop displays each item's group number in the Priority column.
    Within each group, enabled items are shown first, then disabled items,
    and finally items that are ready for removal. The groups load in the
    order specified, and enabled items within a group will load in roughly
    the order shown, though this may vary. Because the order of the items is
    significant, Startup Cop does not permit sorting into different orders
    by clicking the column headings.

    Thanks or Good Luck,
    There may be humor in this post, and,
    Naturally, you will not sue,
    should things get worse after this,
