Mark, I don't think that link works on SERVICES? Some of the entries are from SERVICES, and Black Viper's site it the best for them.

Some the OP listed, like IEXPLORER.EXE is the IE, which was probably used to post here.

It would be easier if the OP posted the STARTUP page from MSCONFIG and the SERVICES.MSC entries.

There are program that can 'control' both the STARTUP and SERVICES, like StartUpCop from PC Mag. (costs if not a utility member).
