Download Spybot Search and Destroy. It will find things that Adaware won't. You can find it with Google.

Open the Run box on your Start menu, and type in "msconfig." Hit OK, then select the Startup tab. There you will see everything that your computer is loading on bootup. Unticking a box will delete that program from startup. (Requires a restart.)

There are really only two things that the computer needs to start - SysTray and Scan Registry. The problem is that almost every thing that you install these days wants to put itself in the startup menu. Almost none of it really needs to be there. All these programs loading and running at boot slow the computer down.

If you have a firewall and/or antivirus, of course you want to leave them loading at boot, but anything else beside what's mentioned above can be safely unticked. It might cause the program to take 2 seconds longer when you start it up. Big deal.
