Question How do u end startup processes?

I did it once before, my computer is pretty slow now from the accumulation of un-needed processes. I remember a check box thingy where u check which processes you wanted to start at startup and stop the ones u dont so the compouter will go faster. how do u do this again?

Intel Q6600 w/ CM Geminii
MSI P6N Deluxe SLI
BFG 8800GT w/ 22'' Acer LCD
Razer Barracuda AC-1, Razer eXactmat
Logitech G15, MX Revolution, X-230
Zalman Fatal1ty FC-ZE1 case w/ Zalman ZM-MFC1 Fan controller

Go to run and type in "msconfig".
EDIT: or you can play around with these settings in here too. "services.msc"
