I have seen this problem of miscellaneous items in startup (or starting up when the computer starts) all the time. The best way to disable anything you don't want to start is to install a little application called startupcpl it installs into the control panel as "startup" - you can then de-select anything you want to remove. Very handy little program - it can also help when the odd virus is staring up with the computer. To download it go to http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml
