Hi
Windows 7, .... I am NOT able to find Program File that contains 'Start Up' folder, although there are all other programs, i.e., Word, McAfee, I.E., Mail and others.

The reason I want to find 'Start Up' folder is that I want to get 'this site/Windows7Forums' run automatically when Windows 7 starts.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

That's because it's one word. not two words. The folder in Program Files is called Startup.

For one reason the startup folder is not located in program files.

Check this location
"c:\Users\{UserID}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\"

You could however create the link and then drag and drop to your startup folder in the start menu.
