Edit Startup Programs Of An OS On A External HD?

My laptop crashed and I suspected it could be due to a bugged startup peogram issue.

I connected my laptop HD to another laptop, but I couldn't find any method to enter the msconfig of the Windows OS of the connected HD.

Edit Startup Programs
I know about MSCONFIG.

the problem is, when you use MSCONFIG to deselect programs from starting up, you force your computer into "Safemode".

I once used a ms command that allowed me to disable enable all programs that start up with windows, other than MSCONFIG.

It did not force my windows into Safemode.

which command is it that allows you to disable programs from starting up with windows,

BESIDES MSCONFIG ? anyone know.?

[64bit] Cannot Uncheck Startup/ Edit Startup Entries
Trying to disable some of the bloatware that came with my HP G62, as well as disable unneeded auto-updates, and have been blocked from doing so.Ran msconfig, startup entries... Unchecked, hit "apply" and they just become checked again. (Ran as administrator on admin account)Tried "Tuneup Utilities." Same effect.Have been trying to disable Yahoo Messenger from starting and it just keeps on starting.I have unchecked the startup box in the pref dialog of the prog.Is my admin account not really admin? (No other accounts on the computer)

Startup Programs Not Opening During Startup
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

I have CPU-Z, Hardware Monitor Pro and Resource Monitor shortcuts in the startup folder.

If I go to MSCONFIG I can see that the items are there to be started during startup.

What am I doing wrong that will not allow these programs to start up?

How To Change Startup Programs
Before Windows 7 I could simply go to Task Manager, then to the Startup tab to check or uncheck whatever programs I didn't want running every time I turned my computer on. But now with this OS that tab isn't present in TM, and a search of "Startup" doesn't bring up anything.

I got directions telling me to go into folders in Windows Explorer that don't exist, so that dead-ended.

Cannot Block Startup Programs
in windows vista I could block startup programs i didn't want using up system resources, but with windows 7 I cant find a way of doing that, I understand its always a good idea to have normal startup mode instead of selective in misconfiguration. but in vista I could simply block programs in component services but the ones I want to block are not even listed in windows 7! is this the wrong place to look or is blocking startup programs not an option in windows 7?

External HDD Opens Auto-play On Startup
I bought a Toshiba P875-7200s last month. I have two external portable hard drives (a simple drive 250GB and a WD 250GB). The laptop has two powered USB 3 ports (for charging devices when the computer is off) and two USB 3 unpowered ports. I have the WD HD plugged into one of the powered ports and every time I start the computer the autoplay comes up asking what I want to do with the WD drive.I want to keep the autoplay function (opening CD, DVD, Photo files (which I do often)) but I want to stop this opening with my HD when I turn on the computer. I have seen numerous fixes for this on the web and have tried many of them, but none have worked.

Can't Open Links From Any External Programs
I'm currently working with a laptop running a new copy of Windows 7 Professional (not the one in my system specs). Mozilla Firefox is the default browser, and for some reason, I can't get any links I click on in external programs to open. I click on a link in Outlook, Messenger, or any other program, and the focus switches off of that program, but nothing else happens. Firefox is working just fine otherwise. Any ideas or suggestions?

Can Startup Programs Run As Administrator ?
I have a couple of programs (Logitech Setpoint is one) which need to run as administrator in order to work in some programs (e.g. Visual Studio 2005). They are set to run at start-up, however since I've set them to run as administrator, they don't run.

Is there any way to get these to run at start up?

Programs Not Working After Startup Repair
I just finished cleaning my PC of Malware with the help of Gringo over in the Security section and while running a program (TFC) my computer froze twice and when I tried to boot it up started the start-up repair.

How Do You Add Programs To The Startup Folder ?
I have looked and looked and I can not see a way to add links into the startup folder. If i use Windows explorer to navigate to the Startup folder, I am told I do not have authority to access it (I am the administrator and only account on the system). Nothing in control panel seems to apply so how is it done now ?

Suggestions For Delaying Startup Programs?
I just purchased a new Acer 4830TG (i5 2.5 GHz) and immediately replaced the HD with a SanDisk Extreme (550 MB/s read, 510 MB/s write).I have certain programs in the Startup folder- Excel workspace (6 spreadsheets) for my business, Word, Firefox (with approx 35 tabs) and Thunderbird. I like to hit the power button, enter my password, then go make my coffee and come back to find everything loaded and my morning emails all downloaded (4 different accounts).Except now Firefox and Thunderbird are loading so fast the wireless network has not finished connecting before they start sending requests, and of course I am getting network connection errors.I can't believe I am actually having to ask this, but does anyone have any suggestions for freebie programs that can delay the loading of programs in the startup folder? Or tell me how to write a batch file of some kind that call these programs with a delay scripted in?

Getting Programs To Run At Startup With UAC?
There are some programs that I need to run at startup, but they tend to need to be run as administrator. I have dragged the shortcut into the startup folder, but this doesn't start the program. Some apps that I need are RealTemp, Gigabyte Dynamic Energy Saver2, and Gigabyte Easy Tune 6.East Tune 6 does seem to start itself at startup, even though it needs to be run as administrator if I start it from it's shortcut, and I don't get a UAC window, so there must be a way to configure startup for these kind of things. The DES2 app also runs at startup, but not always for some reason, so I would like to add it to the startup list to make sure it's running. I have followed the windows instructions for adding programs to startup, and I have also checked the "run as administrator" check box under compatibility, but neither of these seems to do anything.

I'm not sure why you have a "run as administrator" check box if you still get asked if you want to run as admin even when it is checked. Why have a feature that doesn't do anything? I'm not sure that the entire UAC feature is supposed to do anyway, other than annoy you when you do something that microsoft would rather you not do.

Where Is Or Edit.exe
I wonder if on Windows 7 64 bit they did away with the venerable old DOS or edit.exe (I forget if it was ever an exe file, seems like it was). I know it was there in Windows 7 32 bit.I can't find it anywhere on my new HP dv7 laptop. I can use textpad I guess but for quick and dirty editing of a new file, I found edit to be perfect.

Startup Extremely Slow When External Hard Drive Attached?
i just bought an external HD drive and it's very good but ... When I attach my external hard drive start up becomes painfully slow , like at least 5 times slower !. I get past the BIOS load screen fine but once the computer gets to the Starting Windows screen it sits there for a good 30-60 seconds. Then when the screen goes black (as it's going from the "starting windows" screen with the little windows 7 icon to the login screen) it again sits for anywhere from 1-2minutes, if not longer.i have an old external HD and I've been using it for 2 years and never had this problem !another thing when i click on " safely remove the HD " before i reboot and without taking the usb off the computer just stats normally !

Any Way To Move Installed Programs To New External Hard Drive?
I'm about to get a 2 terabyte external hard drive and I would like to move all my user installed programs to it without uninstalling them and reinstalling to the new drive. My question is....1. Is it safe to drag and drop the program files from C: to the new drive, and 2. If it's not a good idea to perform a drag and drop is there another option?
