It's in C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

There's also another one that may contain other shortcuts defined for all users rather than an individual user:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Why not msconfig? It shows the location of the startup folder, it shows the location of the registry branches (which contain file paths) and the same for services.
The only relevant thing not shown are scheduled tasks. Find those in control panel (make sure you are logged in as administrator).

Also check the registry under HKLM/Windows/Microsoft/CurrentVersion/Run or run once.
