Programs that load automatically on Startup

My computer loads quite a number of programs on Startup, most of which I don't want, some of which I have no memory of ever asking for.

If I press Cntrl/Alt/Delete once I get a dialogue box listing what I presume is all the programs currently running. However the names of some of them are not very transparent. How do I track down which one are essential (like Systray) and which are redundant?

Is there a way of finding a list of programs scheduled to load on Startup and amending it? My Windows manual (I run Win98SE) suggests going to Start/Settings/Taskbar and Start Menu/Start Menu Programs but that lists all the programs on my hard drive.

Sorry, posted this in the wrong forum. It was meant for Helpdesk. I'll end it here and repost
