If it's not in your msconfig, the only other place I know of that will start programs at boot is Start->All Programs->Startup

I'm assuming a lot of things since you provided no actual information about your operating system and instead opted for semi-abusive whining.

I think a moderator removed Mr. Inwood's reply, but it was suggesting that msconfig controls the "startup" folder in the All Programs section of the start menu.

I'll post my response here.

No. You are unequivocally wrong.

Start->Run "msconfig" brings up a panel that lets you configure some advanced startup options. Exactly one of the *five* tabs in that window deals with programs that autostart when windows stars up. That tab is called "Startup". In that tab is a list of programs that are registered with the os to auto start at login. You can check and uncheck the boxes to enable and disable those.

Start->All Programs->Startup is a folder where users can copy shortcut links they have made. Windows looks at this folder and opens any shorcuts it finds there.

These are two completely separate things. Neither one can control the other.

Both of you are wrong. Photoshop is not listed in any startup folder or in msconfig
So take your < unnecessary profanity removed by admin > replies and disappear

Both of me are correct. I offered my advice based on what steps you said you'd already taken. It's not my fault that you did not provide more information.

If you had an ounce of courtesy or gratitude, I might have looked for another solution, but at this point I doubt anyone on these forums is going to help you.

This might be a better option for someone with your... social skills: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=startup+program+...
