start up programs what is required?

When I run msconfig and review the programs running in startup. What should be the main ones required and what can I un-check? I've looked at google for help but still no the wiser.
I run win WP home with latest SP.

Basically leave your Antivirus and firewall ticked and any realtime antispyware scanner ticked.

if a laptop,do not untick the synaptics.

if you have anything like Winpatrol,leave this ticked also.

Apply and ok,now reboot the computer.
