In the start window then programs and then start I would like to move a program and all the info there. I have tried but to no evail. The only way that I found was to move the whole folder and then click the actual file that I want to run. Thought this works I would like to have it done on its own. When I move the program its self I lose all the data that was there and that really sucks. It is a pop up killer and I don't want to have to put the info in again.

You need to put a Shortcut into the Startup folder. Move your program back where it belongs or re-install it and then drag'n drop a shortcut of the .exe file into the Startup folder.

This is a general rule.
You don't keep programs in the Start Menu\programs folder. You leave them wherever they are, and simply put a shortcut in the start menu
