    The majority of them seem to be coming from your Bluetooth, wireless and McAfee usage. I don't know what you can do without there.

    But you can certainly run msconfig and uncheck things like Quicktime, Sun Java, [PCMService], ISUSScheduler, ISUSPM Startup, Dell Photo AIO Printer 942, DellMCM, Adobe, Itunes, Nero, Site Advisor, tkbelle (real media), Dell support,

    ... and possibly others.

    What I suggest is you run the "exes" through Google and decide whether you really need them; you can uncheck them in Msconfig > startups, and if you find that inconvenient, just recheck them if you want them.

    In addition to general Google searches for obscure items, I use these sites frequently:
