Start BleachBit with computer broken on non-English Windows

Bug Description

Localized (non-English) versions of Windows change the names of the Start Menu folder and its subfolders. For example, on the Italian version of Windows, "%USERPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup" becomes "%USERPROFILE%\Menu Avvio\Programmi\Esecuzione automatica".

When checking the "Start BleachBit with computer" option on Windows, BleachBIt tries to create the shortcut in a hardcoded path; instead, it should use SHGetSpecialFolderPath to retrieve CSIDL_STARTUP.

Patch attached. Not fully tested because I didn't rebuild the Windows version of BleachBit.

For reference, here is the BleachBit.exe.log file containing the error.
