    I just deleted the "Startup Items" folder by accident, it's found in the "Library" folder. How do I fix this??

    It's in your Trash*, you can either put it back (10.6.x) or manually drag it back where it belongs.

    Or have you already emptied the Trash?

    I just checked, and my Startupitems folder is empty.

    * Can be found on the right/bottom side of the Dock.

    Here's what the Trash looks like when it's empty (left) and when it's got something in it (right).
