You could kill a few right away with most of the HP stuff.

Anything that is an 'updater'

All Apple processes , ipodservice, bonjour etc

The webcam software, lightscribe

It's a start

(What you are seeing is what is commonly called "Bloatware" - companies like HP are renowned for it. The vast majority of services simply aren't needed.

It may also be a good idea to keep a list of what you are disabling *in case* something you regularly use stops working how you like it.

Most of the below should still function, but only open when/if needed. Also, a lot of these can only be disabled by disabling the service itself using services.msc

Andea Filter process (mic related)
SmartMenu.exe (Hp media related)
psiservice-2 (Corel related)
digitalpersona (* finger print scanner related * )
igxfpers.exe (Intel graphics related - not need to be run at startup)
IDT PC audio (audio driver system tray)

Just got a chance to look at your startups. Other than Stardock you can disable everything - even WinPatrol, although it provides additional protection. Read the documentation and judge for yourself.

I somewhat figured out the problem. On almost all my programs I had automatic updates and every feature and operation on so I think that's the problem. Some things were just not starting for scamps the go recovery manager didn't start I had to do it by restart. I ended up backing up my music videos and documents on an external and restored the computer back to out f the box. I'm going to follow the the thread here on the forums for "hp out of the box set up guide" and "optimizing your computer" threads. Thanks slot for the help.
