Slow boot up

  7squadron 20:25 20 Nov 2005

Since installing the software for my HP Photosmart 8050 printer my boot up takes much longer. I note that in the startup section of msconfig there are 27 programmes ticked.
Is it safe to un-tick some of these?
Can I re-tick them if necessary?
My operating system is MS Xp Pro.

Untick everything except antivirus and firewall

If you could list the programs you want to untick this will help.
And they can be ticked again if problems occur.
