The thing about the services is that they can make your pc more secure but could break programs later on. You just got to document what you changed for troubleshooting in the future.
Thanks for the link. I'm going to have to upgrade to 4 give the speed-ups a try.
OK, I just tried a program called Autoruns, but I'm kind of confused by it.
There are a dozen tabs, but I'm not sure if everything under the "EVERTHING" tab is really affecting my start-up. When I look At my "LOGON" tab, it more accurately resembles what my startup msconfig looks like.
Here are some of the things listed in the "everthing tab." Note that there is A LOT more than this.

For my purposes, should I only be concerned with the logon tab?
Thanks for the help.
I downloaded Revo uninstaller and when I click on the "autorun manager", it shows the same programs the are shown in the "log on" tab of the Autoruns program I just mentioned. Perhaps I was right in thinking that all of the items shown in the "Everything" tab of Autoruns aren't too much to be concerned about
I wonder if a lot of these aren't the items listed in the "services" tab of MSCONFIG. I know I haven't disabled any of those.
