    A while ago I drag and dropped the startup folder onto my desktop and now I can't get it off! I even used Killbox and that couldn't do it. Could somone PLEASE tell me a way to remove the folder but still have the programs inside run at startup?

    I don't know if this will work, but try it.

    Right-click on the Startup folder (on your Desktop) then select Cut.

    Now go to "C:\Documents and Settings\User\Start Menu\Programs\" then Paste the folder there.
