process are mostly windows services and are different from programs running.

to disable some uneeded programs running when windows starts up click start/run and type msconfig and click ok.

click the start up tab and untick everything except your antivirus and firewall and restart the computer.

if you are unsure what the programs are click here for reference

may also be worth running a check for both spybot click here and adaware click here

after installing both,update them and run each, one at a time and remove all they find.
