The start menu/taskbar et al is the systray (in case it is missing from
your startup group in msconfig).

On a side note:  http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml has a utility that
acts just like msconfig and works under 2000/XP.  I copied it into the
Windows/System directory and renamed it msconfig (old habits and all) and
have used it numerous times to control post application install items.
