go to explorer>tools>folder options>view>show hidden files etc and uncheck hide protected files (you will get a warning but say ok). Go to explorer>local disk C>documents and settings>yourname>start menu>programs>startup. You may have to look in All users.
At the end reverse the instructions about viewing files
