Click Start, Run, type msconfig and click OK.  Go to the Startup tab and uncheck programs you don't want to run.

Type MSCONFIG at the Run Dialog box off the Start Menu. You can put check marks to disable starting of programs.

Create the perfect environment for any meeting

You might have a modern environment with all sorts of high-tech equipment, but what makes it worthwhile is how you seamlessly bring together the presentation with audio, video and lighting. The ATEN Control System provides integrated control and system automation.

I'd suggest right-clicking on the icons in the tray and look through the options for a way to turn off the "tray" or "run at startup" feature.

Then go to msconfig,

Then go to Start>Run, type sysedit. Look over the autoexec.bat for unneccessary lines, click the win.ini and check for programs loading here:
[windows]
load=
run=

Check the Start>Programs>Startup folder for shorcuts.

you could try PC Magazines Startup Cop which is freeware and you can download it from the following link. This program allows you to control which programs run on start-up. Click on this link for more info http://www.zdnet.com/downloads/stories/info/0,10615,77594,00.html
