Is there a sample startup menu which will just startup my XP computer and not all the programs which have been added to the system?

Someone here may know of a means of doing this, but I don't. But you can delete application from the startup to make it quicker. This article does a good job of explaining the process and to choose what you want to delete.

Hi Lenfagen

Welcome to Bleeping Computer. A great program to help you with all sorts of things is the free WINPATROL, available here - http://www.winpatrol.com/download.html

After you install it, right click on Scotty dog in your system tray and choose STARTUP. There you can disable any items in your startup. Scotty will also jump up and ask you approve any changes being made to your computer.

If you use Winpatrol, or Spybot Search & Destroy, Startup inspector, Startup Control panel or Autoruns then look right above this page: under Startup List tab you can type the exe file of the startup entry and press Search. It gives you information about the entry and tell you if it is needed to run.
