2 Quick Process related questions

1) I have 54 processes running in general so want to cut it down a bit. IF I stop the processes in services.msc will those processes be always stopped, or will they return to normal after a restart? Are there any good sites for telling me what processes I can stop?

2) How do I stop some certain programs loading at startup? If I use msconfig, it seems to open every time I startup, and always just asks me to restart again. Can you use it so, it doesnt startup at startup everytime, and actually does stop the programs running at startup more than just the 1st time one uses it.

now I have terminated certain settings in services.msc will they stay that way after a reboot?

Yes, they will, provided their startup type has been changed accordingly. Allow for the fact that they may still start if you left them on Manual (which can be useful if you are unsure whether a service is needed or not).
