Windows Startup

Can any one tell me how do i cleanup the windows startup entries. I'm having WIndows 2000 Professional Edition.

I also want to delete the useless registry records of softwares which have been deleted/uninstalled already. A professional had told me that if we don't clear those unwanted registry records, our system will be a bit slower. I'm having a P3 system with 64MB RAM. Is there any further way to make it a bit faster?

awaiting for response.
