    Microsoft Windows startup Registry Settings 

    INFO: Run, RunOnce, RunServices, RunServicesOnce and Startup:

    I believe this is pretty much a bulk of the information set by Xteq X-Setup. For those who don’t want to make the purchase for a very simple edit, the following is the except from the Microsoft KB article

    General order of loading:

    1. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRunServicesOnce
    2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRunServices
    3. <Logon Prompt>
    4. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRunOnce Not supported in NT 3.51 and ignored by XP and 2000 in safe mode
    5. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
    6. HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
    7. StartUp Folder
    8. HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRunOnce Not supported in NT 3.51 and ignored by XP and 2000 in safe mode


    With the exception of the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE…RunOnce key, all keys and their entries are loaded asynchronously. Therefore, all entries in the RunServices and RunServicesOnce keys can potentially run at the same time.

    Entries in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE…RunOnce key are loaded synchronously in an undefined order.

    Because the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE…RunOnce key is loaded synchronously, all of its entries must finish loading before the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE…Run, HKEY_CURRENT_USER…Run, HKEY_CURRENT_USER…RunOnce, and Startup Folder entries can be loaded.

    Run Command Most Recently Used List Storage 

    At least for Windows XP, this list is stored in the registry:

    My ComputerHKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerRunMRU

    It looks like there are values a through z off of RunMRU, plus (Default) and MRUList. There is string value in MRUList: e.g., “nkvlsawbhczeyoijfugrtdxpmq”, which determines the ordering of MRUList entries.
