Cannot access all startup items in Windows 8

    I just ran the default options, but yes, I do believe those were selected. I attempted to run the batch file but it is not doing anything. Am I just copying everything from startupProgs.bat: to the end of the 3rd query and saving it in notepad and running it as an Admin? Or is there a different procedure? Because when I run it, I see the command prompt coming up for about a half a second, then disappearing and then nothing else happens.

    You need to run it from a Command Prompt and perhaps a Elevated Command Prompt. When I run it I get:

    >reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"
        Adobe ARM    REG_SZ    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\ARM\1.0\AdobeARM.exe"

    I'm guessing I am doing something wrong because this is what comes up.

    Looks like you are putting a colon at the end of the command startupProgs.bat: ... don't!

    I re-did it but I didn't put a colon in there it did it automatically, but I feel like I didn't set up the batch file correctly. Were the steps that I described the correct way of setting up a batch file? Because I have never actually setup my own, so I'm wondering if I did it wrong.Click image for larger version

    Don't include startupProgs.bat: in the batch file, just the 3 reg query lines.

    ZtrukerI'm guessing I did this right but still, I am only seeing the two entries that I have ever mentioned but I know for a fact that is not true. I have touchpad software through Asus starting up as well as dropbox, gmail notifier, norton internet security, hotspot shield elite, and I know there are more for drivers, etc. So why, after all of this, is everything just "blank".Click image for larger version

    Are you running this from a Elevated Command Prompt?

    I have always been running it as Admin. I right click on the start menu and click Command Prompt (Admin).

    It looks like those entries in the registry have been deleted but that can't be true or they wouldn't still be starting when you boot.

    What does Autoruns that My2cents suggested show you? I would think it would be the same as Startup in Task Manager but let's see.
