Default Cannot Delete/Remove Startup Programs in MSCONFIG for WinXP Pro

I also have the same problem as "rcg12779". For several years now, when loading major new programs or major updates to existing programs, I have used the run msconfig utility to do a clean boot.
Two weeks ago I repeated the same routine only to find when I rebooted into windows about half of the start up programs had rebooted again including the virus and spyware programs.
I quess there are links somewhere overriding the start up disable command but as a computer user rather than a computer expert I don't know where to start looking and what I would be looking for.
