I recommend Startup Inspector because it better helps you identify the programs connected with the startup entries so you do not disable essential programs.

Startup Inspector – freeware (manages startup menu – helps you identify aps in the startup menu so you can disable unnecessary programs from running in the background when they are not needed)

And

Startup Monitor (a small freeware ap available on the same page to notify you and require your permission for any program to add itself to your startup menu)

I must be missing something but normally if you want to see what starts are, it's:

runbox command
- press: winkey + r button
- type: msconfig
- press: enter
- click tab: start ups
look at your start ups

and then there are various places where one can check them

databasics, of startups entries in msconfig,

Startup Inspector tells the user what's running by application name, much more user friendly to those who are unfamiliar with the service names as listed in msconfig.

Thanks so much for the help, everyone! NOW, I've got a way to look into it and see if I can tell what is making my computer take so long to load!
