What is the location of startup programs in Windows Registry
  

This is very basic thing which I am asking but may be quiet useful to most of us like me. I would like to know where can I get the startup programs on my system from Windows registry? Please help! I want to make my computer boot faster and so thinking of to stop many of the unknown and useless applications to run in the background.

Re: What is the location of startup programs in Windows Registry

Usually the registry keys are loaded in the following order:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce

You can improve your computer booting speed by some processor tweak, using some registry tweaks or following some of the basic operations. You can even use some registry cleaner to remove unwanted entries from your Windows Registry.
