Go to your run menui, and type in MSCONFIG in the bar. Hit enter, and then click selective startup, then take checkboxes out of anything you don't want to run at startup. It is very easy, but if you run into any troubles, just PM me, or repost here with another question.

Also, depending on the software, disable the tray icon option if at all possible (should be in options of that program if it has those options)
