    The Startup tab is not present on Windows Server 2012. It is only on Windows 8.

  • my lifecam VX 6000 starts up at logon. I couldn't find anywhere to prevent it from starting. Then I found Run autoruns.exe as Administrator > navigate to Logon tab > disable the lifecam program.

  • True, autoruns is not a 'Microsoft' program, but it was written by the chief software architect at Microsoft.  And whenever you install client applications that are not tested/supported on Server, they can do some strange things.
