The only items on my startup tab are AV and firewall.

You can untick everything in msconfig and the PC should boot okay- make a note of what is currently loading before unticking an item.

The absolute minimum depends on which OS you're using- Win XP?

The running processes can be viewed in Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del).

Which program/process are you concerned about?
