Sheesh! Several "unnecessary dross"! Java Updates+Quickstart could be disabled for example (in the Console). There may be some installed that have Services (not familiar with one or two) that you may have to Disable. Otherwise, CCleaner and/or SpyBot would work for the "Startup" and "Run" types (they "move" the StartupFolder/Registry entries). You might want to check what you really need.

EDIT - see next post.

and thank you, Yzöwl, for the clarification of Disabled vs Manual.

Both of these 'Tasks' are 'Services' if you change the 'Startup type' to 'Manual' instead of 'Automatic' they will only start up if needed. You can access the particular services by 'entering' the following in the Start Menu Search box: SERVICES.MSC. Scroll to the services you are wishing to change, right-click on them and change the 'Startup type' accordingly.
