Hi The start up taskbar at the bottom right is really starting to fill up. It's to the point that I don't know what programs are necessary to run on start up and which are not. Right now there are icons for my speakers, exif launcher(?),true assistant(from my old AT & T sbcglobal email that is still active),my webcam,PC Firewall Tools +,Yahoo messenger, local area connection, Avira( I know this one is necessary at startup), HP Digital Imaging monitor,Skype & a Safely remove Hardware(?). First please tell me which stays and which should go, then how to stop them from starting at start up and also why is this happening that so may things are starting up in the first place. Thanks for any help you can give me. Please talk to me as simply as you can. I'm good at following directions but terrible at understanding computers....

Download and run Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml). Uncheck everything except your anti virus app and reboot. You can always re-enable something to load at boot by re-checking it and rebooting.
