    Computer Startup Programs

    Asked Aug 19, 2010, 02:55 PM 1 Answer
    I have a DELL Laptop E1505 with Windows Vista installed.
    How do I find what programs are attached to Startup?
    I clicked on the Startup in the program files but it says it's 'empty'.
    In Windows XP: you can click: RUN then type: msconfig, and it will let you see the files that are attached to Startup.
    In Vista (on my laptop), there is no such place as RUN. And, I don't know where to go in Vista to find a like program?
    I would really like to see the file list as my laptop takes forever an a day to show the home screen on Startup.
    Appreciate any the help on this.

    On the start menu there is a search box. Type msconfig it should direct you to msconfig.exe
