Startup folder is empty (Windows 7)

Specs: Windows 7 Home premium
I am trying to get my computer to run faster because it has really slowed down the last day or two, so I was going to remove some unnecessary startup programs. I found my startup folder, and it is empty, but I know there are startup programs because I saw a list of them when I ran a diagnostic report with my Norton 360.
Why is this folder empty then?
Also, I have an HP laptop and I'm the only user on it.

Reduce the number of programs that start up when you switch on the computer by downloading the free Quick Startup from here

When installing the program, be aware of the Toolbar add on and when you've finished using it, uninstall it as it has served its purpose. Not only does it check for the necessity of startup programs but it can identify ‘nasties‘. To disable (recommended action) an entry, remove the tick alongside its name. If you are unsure about an entry and want to know more about it, highlight it and then click ‘More information’ at the bottom of the screen. To delete an entry from the list (it doesn't uninstall the program), highlight it and click Delete in the left pane.
