    First off, you're going to have to use msconfig to remove some startup entries for programs you don't need running at startup. Messenger will have to be taken care of once you log in, it's in the Options under General.

    Most startup programs will include, update managers, java's jusched, quicktime, nerocheck, microsoft office, adobe, etc. Helper programs for video/sound drivers also do not need to be running in the background.
