Go to run & type msconfig click OK then select startup tab you can then untick any program you do not want to load at startup, to close any progam running I think you will have to press ctrl alt delete together once, this should bring up the task manager( If you press 3 times it will shut down your computer) Highlight the program you want to close & click end task. I hope this is right for you I am on XP & it is slightly different.

On the Programs, Startup menu, several programs may be listed. These will run whenever you start Windows. If you know you don't need them, just delete the shortcut from the Startup folder. Right-click, delete.

To close a running program, Alter F4 or Exit from the File menu usually does the business. You only need to use Ctrl Alt Delete if the program is not responding to any kind of keyboard or mouse input.
