    When I start my pc I have programs that startup at the same time. How do stop them from starting when I turn my pc on. It slows the startup. This is the icons on far right of the task bar.

    Run MSCONFIG and select the Startup tab. Uncheck the option you don't need. You can experiment as you can recheck any of them if you find you needed it.
