Hi qwertymikey and welcome to Seven Forums. You will need a third party product to do that. I use Startup Delayer. The free version is fine. r2 Studios - Startup Delayer

Also I wrote one called DelayedCuts that's configured manually. You drag the shortcuts you want to run at your logon onto the ListView. Enter in the delay times. Then save. It saves only one shortcut to the user's Startup Folder. A program called DelayedLoad. Since it forces you to drop shortcuts on you know you can configure the program with any options such as command line args, start minimized etc..

To temporarily avoid starting all these apps all you have to do is move the DelayedLoad shortcut out of Startup or delete it.
