you can look in the all users or default user profile.

or in the registry at
hkey local machine\software\microsoft\windows\current version\run

this will show you all items that are loading

you can get ms config loaded onto a 2000 box and on the start up tab will also show you these items and a option to uncheck or temporarily disable them. but to permanently remove them you have to go to this key in the registry.

before altering the registry remember to always back it up before you make any changes...

If you are going to check the registry there is also:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

I prefer using the registry, but you should do so only if you are comfortable with it.
