    How do I safely remove the icons in the lower right area of screen? Think this is the start-up task bar.Think this is definitly slowing the boot up time. In advance thanks for any help.

    Start> Run> type: msconfig and hit OK.
    On General tab, click the radio button: Selective Startup.
    Then click on Startup tab. Uncheck the ones you don't want to start at boot. Be sure that you leave your anti-virus and SysTray. Then restart your computer. You will have a window appear about starting in selective mode, just tick the box do not show the message again. This dialog window will open everytime that you use msconfig to change anything.
