Programs missing from startup

  hiwatt 01:44 02 Oct 2007

Hi folks,after uninstalling Iobit's defrag I restarted my computer only to find that my usual programs that run on startup(avg,comodo firewall,and spyware termiator)hadn't started.Even stranger is when I run msconfig the've all vanished from the start up option yet the programs that weren't running on start up are still there.I can start them manually but can anyone tell me how to get them to run at start up and what might have happened?Thanks.

System Restore? then try uninstalling Iobit a different way.

I tried everything I could think of to no avail.I had to uninstall then reinstall my antivirus and firewall.All's back to normal now.Thanks
