    Hi stbernardlov,

    I'm going to hazard a guess that you are running a version of WinXP?

    Please download Process Explorer (freeware) from http://www.sysinternals.com
    install and run it after you complete startup.

    It will nicely delineate the system processes for you vs the application processes. I am not familiar with your applications, but my guess is that there are a lot that do not need to be started up automatically. You can then rediscover the joy of starting up whatever you need when you need it and shutting down what you don't need.
