necessary startup programs?

Specs: winxp, 2.66ghz/512mb

Hey, This computer is taking forever to load all of the startup programs. I know what programs are necessary for winx but I don't know what programs need to load automatically
for XP. I hope someone can assist me in my time
of waiting way to long to use this computer. Thanks

Go to start-run and type 'regedit'. And then navigate to hkey_local_machine>software>microsoft>windows>current_version>Run and delete all the unnecessary items.

Make sure that u dont delete the AntiVirus Program by well as the "Power Profile" for WinXP.

Lemme know if that helped!

first go to run type msconfig go to start-up and then deselect the programs or applications that you dont want them to start on windows startup.

you can see here if windows needs the program to start just type the name of the file and the website will tell you if its neccessary for windows or not.
