"You Could make try making this registry file (remove the shortcut from all users start-up first)

----------------------------------------start copy

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
""{Software Name}""=""\""C:\\Program Files\\{Install Folder}\\{Application Name.exe}\""""

end copy-----------------------------------------

Change the {folder and file names} to what ever you need to start, removing the curvy brackets.

Save it as a .txt file then change the extension to .reg

Run the file and see if it corrects the issue

If not you can always remove the entry by creating a .reg file with this line (remeber to change the {software Name} to what every you changed the first one to.

------------------------start copy

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
""{Software Name}""=""""
