There's a couple of ways to do this. The quickest is to click <Start> <Run> Type in "msconfig" w/out the "".

Or click on <Start> >Programs< >System tools< <System Information> <Tools> <System Configuration Utility> to the >Startup< tab.
In here you will find everything that is set to open on boot up. Un check what you want but beware! The wrong thing disabled and you are trouble shooting...
