There are a ton of things that start with your computer, but if you don't know what's necessary and what isn't, a list won't do you much good.

You can see what is currently running on your computer by pressing ctrl-alt-delete once and looking at the list, but again, you have to know what's supposed to be there. Sometimes, malware is obvious.

You might be able to gain some speed by going to your Services directory and remove those services which are unnecessary, but many of them depend on each other and you can mess things up if you disable the wrong one.

For a report of all startup items, you can use a program called Startdreck to generate a report. For information on disabling services, you can go to Black Viper's site.

Or, you may wish to follow the instructions here to help remove spyware and post a HijackThis! log in the HijackThis area of this forum. Be patient, all helpers donate their time and will get to you as quickly as they can.
