    This may be the site that you already refered to but I have found it helpful for winXP: http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_index.htm

    Site seems to be down righ now but should be back up at sometime.

    P.S. - Unless you are refering to processes. I don't change them unless something is really chewing up my CPU.
