Windows 7: Exactly which items can I delete from Start Up?

Exactly which items can I delete from Start Up?

I'm not sure which items I can delete from Start UP. This is my Start Up.
SynTPEnh%ProgramFiles%\Synaptics\SynTP\SynTPEnh.exe IgfxTrayC:\Windows\system32\igfxtray.exeHotKeysCmdsC:\Windows\system32\hkcmd.exePersistenceC:\Window s\system32\igfxpers.exeRTHDVCPLC:\Program Files\Realtek\Audio\HDA\RtkNGUI64.exe -sswg"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\GoogleToolbarNotifier\GoogleToolbarNotifier.exe"msnmsgr"C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Messenger\msnmsgr.exe" /background1B1BE92A235B721E53FF53689D028FC0D9FE9B01._service_run"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --type=serviceInstaLAN"C:\Program Files (x86)\Belkin\Router Setup and Monitor\BelkinRouterMonitor.exe" startupHP Software UpdateC:\Program Files (x86)\Hp\HP Software Update\HPWuSchd2.exeSunJavaUpdateSched

Sorry about how this looks. I can't fix it.

My other question is what Services can I disable in System Services? There were so many disabled that I enabled them all & now I need to know what to disable.

Also in my System Specs here on this Forum how can I find cooling, case, PSU & Internet Speed?

Deleting items from the startup folder depends on what you may use. In theory, you could remove all of them without impacting Windows.

As for the services, that's something that you need to decide item by item. You've done it once already when you had enabled everything. Here's a link that could help you deciding the services that can be removed:

Just scroll down to see the listed services...

I highly recommend not doing anything to Windows 7 Services.

Especially if you don't know what you are doing. Doing so can leave your Windows unbootable and/or royally messed up.

From the startups you can disable everything except your AV program and those that you started yorself - e.g. sidebar (gadgets) or a dock, etc. But leave those services alone.

"My other question is what Services can I disable in System Services? There were so many disabled that I enabled them all & now I need to know what to disable."

Third-party option is the Black Viper link Cr00zng supplied. The default settings are provided for the services in the list.

Microsoft supplied its own list of default settings.

Default settings for services: Management Services

----------------------------------------

As for the start-ups, it depends on what you use your pc for.

If you don't play internet games and/or use software that require Java, then you can uninstall Java and its updater. One down.

If you don't use the hot keys on your laptop to access your media, and use the media software interface instead, you could probably do without the persistent hot key cmd macro. Two down.

The rest depend on what you do with your pc.

Can't you take a screen image of msconfig - startup window and post for easy reading?

No way! I got the link by digging into Windows 7 services panel. I should have read the first few lines of that linked page. I guess we're stuck with Black Viper's, which might be based on the old information as well.
