I'll quote from and point you to bleepingcomputer's Startup Programs Database
"Startup programs are programs that are automatically started by Windows when the operating system starts. The problem is that many programs, viruses, hijackers, spyware, and other malware set themselves to start automatically when Windows starts. As more and more programs are started automatically, your computer's valuable resources are drained, causing your computer to operate slowly.
This database will allow you to search for programs that you find starting automatically on your computer and determine if they are considered to be malware (harmful), optional, unnecessary, or necessary to run. To examine your computer for programs that are automatically started by Windows, you can download and install Autoruns
by Sysinternals. You can then search for entries found in the programs output using this database to determine if the program should be running. If from the information you decide they are not necessary to run, you can uncheck that entry in the Autoruns program and it will no longer start. .."
You might also look atHow To Use The Startup Database. Using Microsoft Technet's free Autoruns utility to manage your start-up programs
Does this help you?
[I will work through all the entries and see what i can find]
