I had the same exact problem of too many programs loading at startup, slowing my system down. But, if you run Spybot ver. 1.4 (which you should be using on a regular basis anyway), go to Tools, then you will see a System Startup button. Click on that and every program will be listed that loads on startup. What I like even better, unlike msconfig, if you click on each program in System Startup menu, Spybot will give you a description of what program the command line is for, and whether or not you really need the program to run at startup. All you have to do is uncheck the box next to the command line, and the program will no longer load at startup. I personally used this to stop 12 programs from booting, and now my system flies. Spybot is in my opinion the best tool in helping you decide which programs to nix....Spybot is invaluable. Get it. Now.
