How do i get rid of the icons ...well the little programs which run when Windows starts up and then is runnning and displayed in the system tray in the bottom corner.

The programs are not in the startup folder so i cant see anything in the starup folder except 'Microsoft office'.

How do i prevent it from running?

Find out the names of the programs the icons represent and then find files with that name, go into the .exe & change there settings and untick start when windows does(or something similar), if that doesn't work; as above, but go start/run type msconfig for quicker/ease.
