There are 3 main ways in which programs are added to the startup applcation list:
  • Application installation process - When you install applications to your Windows system, the installation process may add programs to the startup application list. Examples are: Google Desktop Search, Yahoo Messenger, Real Player, etc.
  • Virus/Adware/Spyware infection process - Many virus, adware, and spyware will add programs to the startup application list.
  • Manual process - You can add programs to the startup application list manually, if you want to.
