I have question about my computer's startup, I have a Compaq Pentium II (128ram?), the operating system is Windows 2000 Professional NT, what I want to do is cut the start up time which is quite long, I think I read a command of some kind that you could enter in Run and access the startup programs, but can't remember it, or where I read it.   Does anyone know what it is?  I have Tune-Up Utilities and I've tried to stop a couple of programs from running through their Startup Menu control, it works a couple of times and then reverts back.  Can anyone help me access my startup directly?

StartupMechanic has some false possitives on what it flags as malware, but the path given is correct, so you can easily decide what to keep or not. Overall, very-very easy to use!
To avoid start-up items registering themselves again, use Spybot's "TeaTimer" which gives you a warning every time something like this happens, and the choice to keep it or not.
