You cannot change the sequence to any great extent. The arrival sequence of the system tray icons is only the user interface not the sequence that the programs start up. Here is the exact sequence of starting, determined by registry keys :-
1.BootExecute HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\BootExecute
2.Services are started
3.User (some) enters a password to logon to the system
4.UserInit HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\UserInit
5.Shell HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell
Programs in ALL USERS keys start next :-
6.RunOnce HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
7.Run HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
8.RunOnceEx HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx
9.RunEx HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunEx
Programs in CURRENT USER keys start next :-
10.RunOnce HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
11.Run HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
12.RunOnceEx HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx
13.RunEx HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunEx
14.Programs in STARTUP FOLDER(S) are started last of all

Start delay takes the info from the registry and adds "delays" to the keys thus affecting which load when.

However start delay loads first (if it doesn't then the rest do not load) and your PC takes longer to fully boot, so if spee is an issue then reordering the start sequence is not for you.
