1. go to START -PROGRAMS - STARTUP- right cliuck on and delete all here-(this wont delete programs, just make it so you have to start them manually from the start menu)- this IS what you want.
2. while your viewing your desktop, any icons showing next to your clock on the taskbar in the lower right of your screen are RUNNING. usually its stuff like your internet connection, virus protection, etc.
you want to turn off any of these not neccessary (example:realplayer,yahoo messenger,myspace messenger, etc.) Some might require the program to be running and loggin in before the preferences are shown and most have a box with something like "  start when windows starts" and you just need to uncheck it and hit apply.
3. if you havent got ATF cleaner, its a must have and will empty all your temp files on demand, i use it everytime i log off the internet . its free here http://www.atribune.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=25&Itemid=25 just click on the red atfcleaner button to start the download , download it to your desktop. its fast and saves you from having to manually del all the internet **** you collect as you browse.
4. you may also want to disable unused services and programs through MSCONFIG, i could write a term paper on that, but its a bit much for now.
Do steps one through three and post here if you need step four..
please rate & may the force be with you.....
