Start, All Programs, Startup also displays programs that activate for your account. If these programs did not start, then you successfully held down the SHIFT key while logging on.

Other software, such as Anti-Virus software does not use the startup up method so they will start with Windows because they are configured in the HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftCurrentVersionRun and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftCurrentVersionRun entries in the Windows Registry.
To disable these programs, you must use the MSCONFIG.EXE , click on STARTUP Tab, and deselect the programs you do not want to load. (MSConfig is available Start, Run, MSCONFIG, or in WinFax Tools, Install & Setup Tools.
