What do you mean by 'Startup file'?  Are you referring to the executable file that runs when you click on the Word 2010 shortcut?

If so it would be:

32-bit: %systemdrive%\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\WINWORD.EXE
64-bit: %systemdrive%\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\WINWORD.EXE

Word always uses the Normal template, whose default file location is in your profile here:
...\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

There is a STARTUP folder that can contain global templates in your profile
...\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP
