In Windows 8, the msconfig startup tab was replaced by the Task Manager startup tab.  But there are several programs running on startup on my PC (logitech updater, adobe updater, EVERY FARKING PROGRAM NEEDS AN UPDATER TO RUN ON BOOT!) that are not listed in this startup tab.  Does anyone know which registry keys were left out of the task manager startup tab?

Look in the startup folder instead of the start-up tab?

What, you mean there's another startup folder aside from the two Start Menu "Startup" folders that the task manager lists in the "startup" tab?

Yeah, but it seems to be missing some registry Run keys.  I actually went through the registry and did a search for every key titled "Run", and I found a couple that listed the aforementioned Adobe and Logitech updaters, deleted their startup entries, but they are still running on startup?! wtf?  some other program must be calling them...

You should be able to disable them in services.msc

Most the services on my computer appear to be stopped.

thank you! hooray for autoruns!  apparently they were actually listed as "services", even though they were just taskbar EXE's and nothing else.  basterd programmers and their sneaky ways of trying to get me to update...
