The answer to your question is two-fold. Firstly Task Manager has nothing to do with startup.
See this
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323527

Processes running on Task Manager, if ended, which is extremely risky unless you know what you are doing, are NOT connected with StartUp.
You could end a process on Task manager and as soon as you restarted it will be running again.

I think you are referring to msconfig - system configuration utility - on the start up tab.
When you uncheck an item, there, and click Apply and OK, it does not then run at startup.
The item is still available on the computer it simply does not load as part of the startup.

Recommendation.
Unless your computer is particularly slow at loading Windows, the best advice is to leave it alone.

To see what you have go start, run and type msconfig then press Enter. Click the startup tab
The items checked are loading at StartUp

It is now some six days since you joined GeekstoGo and asked for help.

Would you please reply to your thread, when you get chance, indicating if you still require help or if the matter is now solved.

Thank you
