1) registry keys are executed before shortcuts on the startup folders.

2) on the registry, it is less apparent for users to modify or remove the command. leave the startup folder to the users, it's theirs. (also don't spam the Documents folder with creating some "My Stuff" subfolders like some programs do, it's annoying).

Yes, and do you see there were plenty of other topics returned? I'm willing to bet it took you longer to type your OP than it would have to find the answer on Google ;)
