What like these I can post some more if you want

Microsoft Critical Update Detects and installs critical updates from the Microsoft site. Most users prefer to install these manually.
Microsoft Find Fast This program is unnecessary and troublesome when it is running.
Microsoft Greetings Reminders Are you willing to give up resources to remember Aunt Sadie's birthday? Me either.
Microsoft Office Startup A resource hog and not needed. If quick access to Office is needed, put a shortcut on the desktop. (Some users report that unchecking this item cause difficulty. Bear this in mind if it is removed and performance is degraded.)
Microsoft Works Calendar Reminders See Greetings Reminders, above.
mmtray Places a Music Box Jukebox icon in the task tray. The program works fine without it.

if you are refering to msconfig and click here then best advice is as above.leave it alone if you are unsure.

but if you really want to try then just untick one at a time am restart,then run everything for a while and if all is ok then move on.

you can always put the tick back if it causes problems.
