Yes. Hit the Start button, type in Msconfig and go under Startup tab. You can uncheck all the unnecessary processes from there. You need to restart the PC for the changes to take place obviously. You can also download and run a scan using Ccleaner to fix things up :)

Oh great :) You should also try Ccleaner. It's a free tool that can fix almost all the common errors and bugs you've got on your PC.

Check the Services tab in msconfig as well. Just check the Hide all Microsoft services box then look at what's left. Some/many may not be needed.

You can Google them or just try and see what happens. The only ones you absolutely need are anti-virus.

I also have Acronis, Brother, Malware Bytes, Mirror Folder, Mozilla Maintenance and some Roxio services running but that's by choice as they provide function I use. None are necessary, just convenient.
