Quick tip from Red_Barren :

If you just bought a new PC, you can just use the disable all button, then uninstall all the trial software they load on it.  There is nothing in there that Windows needs.  Even if you've had your computer for a while but it's running slow, you can still disable all and then re-enable what you need.  As you can see from the attached, I only have 3 things in my startup.  If I need to burn a CD (which is rare), I can open Roxio from the start menu and wait the extra couple of seconds it takes to start.  I don't want Roxio wasting CPU time and memory if I'm not going to use it.
