    It is one of the ultrabooks, or as Asus calls them, zenbooks. Its specific model is UX31A-BHI5T11. It doesn't look like there is a recovery partition and that is why I am worried because there is a specific Asus splash screen and custom touch pad software, etc. I looked on the website and there are drivers for Windows 8, but not nearly the same amount of drivers for 8.1 which worries me.

    You cant see 'Startup" unless "More Details" is clicked.

    I have been aware of that, it was one of the first tips suggested. That is not the issue. I am assuming it has something to do with a registry error, however, I am not completely sure.

    Windows 8 drivers work fine with 8.1 so that should not be a problem.

    Sorry I have been pretty busy, so I have been unable to try anymore troubleshooting. But before I exhaust all effort and go forth with the complete OS re-installation, I was wondering if you either have any colleagues on here, or anywhere else that might be able to weigh in with another opinion on a possible fix before I start this time consuming process?

    Has this issue been collectively given up on? It has been suggested to reinstall Windows. Not only do I not want to do unnecessary work, but my original argument that makes me less and less attracted to this potential solution is that since I turned this laptop on, on day 1, without any additional software or anything, this issue has existed and I don't have the slightest idea why. If any other power users could potentially weigh in on this, I would really appreciate it.

    Well since day 1, up to 2 things show within the startup tab, either just Btmshellex or that and Dropbox. But I had previously posted the logon tab from auto run, here it is again.

    Literally everything. Like I said, at the most the only 2 things that pop up are the Dropbox program and the bluetooth shell. I have Gmail notifier, Norton Internet Security, Hotspot Shield VPN service, Asus mouse gesture software and multiple other things that are actually starting up but do not appear in the startup tab in the task manager.
