If you are running Windows XP, press Ctrl-Alt-Delete, and the Task Manager will pop up. You can also right click on the Taskbar, then left click on Task Manager.

If you want to use MSCONFIG, go here for instructions:

You can also set which programs start with Windows Startup. The easy way is to install Advanced Windows Care. After installing when first running the program go to "Options" and "Updates".

Download Advanced Windows Care here.
