Windows 7: Set priority on services that start automatically

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Set priority on services that start automatically

I recently have installed and uninstalled apache server in order to make it work, now I use XAMPP which SUPPOSEDLY starts the service manually when opened.

However since I have installed it, windows is taking a long time to show the desktop when booting. It says Welcome for a while, then a black screen and finally the desktop is shown.

Is there a way to set showing the desktop the number 1 priority ?

Any help is highly appreciated

For services that absolutely have to start with Windows, you can try setting them to Automatic delayed start and remove startups that you don't need. They cam all be used when you want to open the program.
