Well take another look WebSpyder and tell me that is not the OS I have circled

John, if you look to the right it says its the sidebar (or gadgets). You want to keep that checked if you use gadgets.

There are a few others like Skydrive, StikyNotes and MSE which may also be listed as the MS OS, but no critical System services appear in the Startup list.
