Go there, and uncheck everything other than the antivirus. Then apply and OK.

Just uncheck anything you don't need at startup - the choice is yours.

Even though you uncheck the item's they just don't start at startup, their still there to use when needed.

An alternative method would be to use CCleaner and click on the Startup Tab, Disable and Delete whatever or manually remove the Startup Entries from the Registry which I would not attempt.

Infinite neither of those are good choice's when you can check and uncheck in msconfig without the possibility of really deleteing something and then can't get it back. Just for what's it's worth.

You can find one thing is important to start up with windows ... the antivirus . All the others are not. Even, the antivirus is also an optional thing. Not a must.
