Ok when ever i turn on or restart my computer some applications starts up by it self. i did the msconfig thing.

I will now post a list of applications that i see in my task manager.

wdfmgr.exe --- Local service
svchost.exe --- local service
alg.exe --- local service

svchost.exe --- system (3 svchost shows on my task mana under system index, this one is the one with lowest mem usage.)
WRSSSDK.exe --- system
spoolsv.exe --- system
NhKsrv.exe --- system
nvsvc32.exe --- system
wuauclt.exe --- system

I use nVidia driver for my gfx card.
Kaspersky antivirus
Webroot spy sweeper

i have to close them everytime i restart my comp or turn on my comp. sometimes when i open an application, spoolsv and svchost (system) pops up even after closing it.

is there anyway to terminate them once and for all so i won't have to close them everytime my comp starts up?

I would really like someone to help me with this ASAP.

Thank You.

Do you mean that those processes are "hanging" when you try to shut down? Does the computer shut down properly and completely?

These are ordinary system processes, and most need to be running, or are expected to be running- for example wuauclt.exe is Windows Update. Google them.
