    In addition to the above post by TairikuOkami, it would be the registry locations from Option 3 in the tutorial in post #2.
    There is a folder there called run which contains some of my programs, but I don't see any options to add new programs to it.

    If it does not exist, you can re-create it, then the command shell:startup will work.

    md "%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"

    The other location is here, but it requires admin permission to access/change.

    %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup


    You can use Autoruns (Logon tab)
    , if that does not show anything, then they are most likely gone.
    Sorry but I really don't understand this. It's really technical.

    Cerawy,

    You would need to open a command prompt, and run the command below to do what TairikuOkami posted.

    md "%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"

    Ah, got it. I just did it and now there is a folder called startup if i click on the start menu and programs. If I click windows key + R and type shell:startup the folder will also open.
