I have not tampered with Vista much yet, but I think you can still use the "MSconfig" app to remove programs from startup. Got "Start">>"Run" and type: MSconfig . Then click on the "startup" tab and disable whatever you don't want to run, which will probably be everything, since it's a new computer with abunch of trial crapware. I apologize in advanced if "MSconfig" isn't intergrated into Vista.

MSCONFIG is a good place to start

also try removing a heap of the unnecessary programs that have come installed with vista from the "add remove programs" wizard in the control panel.

however i would suggest that vista has alot more programs running in the background compared to XP, and if you have only recently set up your system, i can only imagine that most of them are necessary!
