Windows ME &junk programs from internet

Hey folks

When my computer starts up, it attempts to load about 30 different applications most of which i don't know what they do and i suspect they are adware and spyware embedded in other programs.

Because they don't appear in the startup folder i can't seem to stop them loading!

Is there anopther way around this, i heard someone saying something about the startup in the registy but not sure the best way to go about this.

Kind regards

Go to run and type msconfig then choose the start up tab you will then see the list of programs running after start up
