Normally they are in one of two places:

First check in your Start, Programs, Startup folder and delete the entries you dont want.

Alternatively they may be found by clicking start, run, MSCONFIG, click on the startup tab and disable what you dont want (the same to re-enable them).

Another great program which is free and very easy to configure is click here
Lets you choose what programs to load at start up and warns you when programs are trying to load without your permission.
