look in msconfig to see if they start at start up, the 'startup' folder may have very little that starts up

go to:
start
run
msconfig
startup
look at all those programs that start at startup, uncheck word and excel references
reboot

Or just take a look in Regedit:

You need to check the following keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion/Run
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
and
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Click on the Run and RunServices subkeys in succession, and take a look in the right pane. See whether there's anything there that could explain this.

Good luck,
