There are a variety of programs that help you see what is running at startup, including hijackthis and autruns by sysinternals
More elaborate programs like rootkits and some advanced keyloggers are more difficult to find, since they operate behind the scenes and do not even show themselves as processes. One typically finds these by the symptoms they display, rather than evidence of the program themselves (know files are invisible, folders behave oddly).
I suppose the best question is why do you ask?
