Auto-Runs

You should checkout the Auto-Runs that startup when Windows is starting up. Microsofts Systernals has a great utility for this. This utility, which has the most comprehensive knowledge of auto-starting locations of any startup monitor, shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and shows you the entries in the order Windows processes them. These programs include ones in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other Registry keys. You can configure Autoruns to show other locations, including Explorer shell extensions, toolbars, browser helper objects, Winlogon notifications, auto-start services, and much more. Autoruns goes way beyond the MSConfig utility bundled with Windows Me and XP.

Autoruns' Hide Signed Microsoft Entries option helps you to zoom in on third-party auto-starting images that have been added to your system and it has support for looking at the auto-starting images configured for other accounts configured on a system. Also included in the download package is a command-line equivalent that can output in CSV format, Autorunsc.

You'll probably be surprised at how many executables are launched automatically!

This one is Free and Covers more than The Start Menu

CCleaner has this functionality built in. It will check both your START menu as well as your desktop for any shortcuts that are no longer valid and remove them:

CCleaner may be downloaded here or here if you prefer the portable version.
