Windows Startup - Windows XP/2000/ME

I am trying to configure Windows to only load some programs at startup. I have a new computer, which has configured Windows to have 15,000 programs running in the background. When I had Windows ME, there was a Startup function in the System Information utility which allowed me to select which programs I wanted to run automatically at startup. I have found no similar feature in Windows XP. Is there any way I can do this?...

    Default Windows Startup

    I am trying to configure Windows to only load some
    programs at startup. I have a new computer, which has
    configured Windows to have 15,000 programs running in the
    background. When I had Windows ME, there was a Startup
    function in the System Information utility which allowed
    me to select which programs I wanted to run automatically
    at startup. I have found no similar feature in Windows
    XP. Is there any way I can do this?
