    Hello:

    I am trying to manage my startup programs that are not in my startup folder. Skype keeps starting at boot however it is not in my startup folder. Is there another location to manage starup programs.

    Thanks

    Is there not an option in Skype's settings that you can select to have the program start with windows? if so unselect it ;)

    Failing that look down the list of startup entries within the msconfig utility

    A very worthwhile program that includes monitoring/disabling/removing startups is "WinPatrol."
