I never went into that sort of thing because, once I had tweeked the startups from msconfig, checkdisk, defrag, cleanup, etc., I knew that if my bootup was still slow the comp either needed more ram, or a lighter AV(Norton is concrete), or had to seriously think about unloading the comp of weight.

you could try 'advanced windowscare' (the free edition) (from 'iobit.com)

BUT! - please make backups, dont rely on these tweaking programmes to do it for you, and dont rely on just system restore.

i dont know what sorts the order of programmes that boot, maybe someone else can advise you on that. i only let my av and firewall start with windows so dont really have to bother about that!

good luck

I found advanced windowscare pretty useful, but I did not like several setting it configured.

It's not unusual for prefetch to do this. Each system is a bit different from every other system - so it takes a lot of work and a lot of "tweaking" to find the best way for your system.
