Disabling startup programs

In Windows XP, if you are getting annoyed by the number of programs that start-up when the OS loads, then there is an easy way to disable the programs we don't need.

Just type "msconfig" in the 'Run' window.  A window titled 'System Configuration Utility' would come up. Navigate to the 'StartUp' tab and uncheck those programs that need not be started at boot time.
