Here are the Windows 7 programs startup registry locations:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Run

and

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run

and

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-**********-**********-*********-****\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

This is good for removing startup items manually from the registry in Windows 7 boot process, avoiding the use of msconfig program to disable start up programs.
