delaying an app start in Windows 7/8

Dear Experts

Had a question I am hoping someone can assist me with.

How do   I intentionally delay an app from starting?

For example, when I login to windows I have numerous apps that want to start up. As a result the system start up time is long.

Is there a way I can delay certain apps from starting, e.g. Skype.

Set Skype to NOT start automatically. Set a Scheduled Job that starts Skype "X" minutes after your login.
