I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The main boot is in BIOS and the rest are startup services. Get Microsoft Sys Internals Autoruns and see what is starting.

They are on the root of your boot drive.  You will be able to see them if you do the option to show hidden and system files.

BTW...when asking a question of this type, it would benefit all if you specify the OS you are asking about.

On C: drive normally. For XP. For Windows Vista+ OS however they are in separate 100MB partition called MSR. Normally hidden partition. For UEFI BIOS systems they are in EFI partition.
