Where does windows store what programs to load at startup beside putting it startup menu?  The reason for this is that I deleted a program and now the computer keeps tell me that it couldn't find that file everything I start up..  So I need to delete the entry in order to keep windows from trying to run it..

Go to the registry.... start-run-(type) regedit

then scroll down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
 
and all the runs.  If there is any entries in there you don't need, just delete them.

Best,
