I saw a post for two different programs you could download that you could manage your startup items. You could disable those that you didn't want running at startup and now I cannot find the post again. Could someone give me the two websites that were listed for the programs that manage startup items. I would really appreciate it.

I use this:

Startup Manager
* Download the program from http://www.mlin.net/files/StartupCPL_EXE.zip
* Run the program
* Click on each of the following tabs in succession and decide whether or not you want the things that appear there to start when your computer starts. All programs can be started in a different way, usually start/all programs etc….:

Startup (user)
Startup (common)
HKLM / Run
HKCU / Run
Services
Run Once

Generally the more programs you move when start up, the faster your computer will run

( Spybot S&D Advanced Mode>tools>system start up) would also do it.

Assuming you're using Windows XP, all you need to do is click Start - Run, type in MSCONFIG, click OK - Startup(tab), remove the checkmark from those programs that you don't want to load and run, click Apply - OK, then reboot.

Just make sure not to uncheck and disable your antivirus program and third-party firewall program(if you have one).

You can also use microsoft Anti-Spyware and it will also let you manage your startup.
