disable them in services. right click the process in task manager, open file location, trace service. type service.msc in run box, right click the service select properties change from auto to manual/ disabled.
I would never recommend anyone to disable there services unless i knew exactly what service needs/wants to be stopped.
During this thread,there looks like a little confusion setting in. Rightly or wrongly,my post is aimed at stopping programs/software loading at startup and not windows services. (maybe i should have explained better)
Using MSCONFIG and STARTUP in Vista is different to using Services.
MSCONFIG startup is quite safe to use with common sense as opposed to the SERVICES tab.
If unsure using Msconfig,use the ccleaner option .
