You see there are some processes that can not be avoided during startup. So Windows would automatically enable them during startup. Just try to identify wich processes are necessary for your system starup and eliminate redundant.

Good Luck.

Just leave it as selective, with all items check and uncheck the programs in the startup tab, because it most likely that where the problem is.

if you want to avoid msconfig, download ccleaner.

When the message comes up after you boot, put a check in the checkbox to not see the message again. Yer done.

Normal startup : load all device drivers and services
Diagnostic startup : load basic devices and services only
Selective startup : load your own

Use selective and disable everything except your antivirus or firewall and reboot
