MSCONFIG startup question

Hi, if anyone can give me some advice on what I can uncheck in the msconfig/startup window to make my computer boot faster it would be greatly appreciated.  heres whats in the startup window now: go to this address

and I have a screen shot of the msconfig/startup window there.  I know whoever helps me with this isnt going to know all the things that are running but just a generalization of what I NEED at startup is what im lookin 4.  Also the computer I have is a compaq presario 5020 if that can help any.  I appreciate any help greatly thanks a lot.

first, you could uncheck the getright monitor.... the netdetect agent launches programs of your choice upon logging onto the internet.... you could add the getright monitor on netdetect agent's launch (rightclick on the icon on the system tray and you will see)

second, what is the HC reminder? if you don't think it is necessary, you could uncheck it too..

if you think the items listed below are not that important, you could uncheck it:

* watchdog
* atikey

i hope this suggestion helps... =)

oops, I meant the first 5 are there running when I hit ctrl/alt/del.
runapp is one of the files that windows use.... the others, like the Cpqeaui,
Bttnserv, Watchdog, Cpqpscp are components of your compaq PC.... if you think you can do without them, you may uncheck them..... thanx.... =)
