Summary0004898: Include task in list of startup items
DescriptionIf I'm not mistaken, Startup Sentinel only enumerates auto-start items defined in the registry under the following key...

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]

However, startup items can also exist as...

a) %SystemRoot%\Tasks

Startup Sentinel should really enumerate all these locations and display them in one list with a column indicating the source location (auto-start, all users startup, current user startup, task).

Double-clicking an item would display details about the specific item (especially important for scheduled items).

Startup Sentinel would allow any item from any source to be treated as an object than can be deleted, whitelisted, or blacklisted. In fact, if 0004897 is implemented, then disable/enable must also be supported.
Additional InformationNote that tasks should be queried via API calls as discussed in the following article....

Shortcuts should already be supported. Do you confirm that they are not displayed on your system ?

My bad. Yes, they do work. The scheduled task support still applies.

There appears to be quite a few startup locations that needs to be supported. Most tools don't support them out-of-the-box, so here's a chance for Startup Monitor to excel. The list of files/regystry keys are towards the end. Please note that this list is old and most likely outdated. My suggestion is to allow for user-created entries like that of TinyWatcher on top of providing full out-of-the box support.
