Try AutoRuns to disable programs from running and Process Explorer to view the running processes.

Go to Administrative Tools and select Services. Right click on the Services you want to edit. Select Properties. Under the Startup Type select Disable.

Be careful what you block - blocking the wrong thing can make your computer not work (for example, blocking winlogon.exe will cause you not to be able to logon).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
