    You need to right click each icon & in there somewhere will be properties & settings you should be able to find somewhere within those options that lets you stop the program loading at startup! Does that make sense?

    After you have done that right click the tool bar & click 'PROPERTIES' then click 'CUSTOMIZE' when you click each icon/program it gives you 3 options just set it to hide always, when inactive etc depending on your preference!

    PC cleaner my OH would suggest: http://www.ccleaner.com/
    Takes all the crap away my OH said. Run this weekly :D

    If there are programs starting when you turn the PC on that you manually exit - Reboot & again don't exit them search for the settings so you can alter the startup options.
