Msconfig configuration - Services

Your now in MSconfig. You want to go to the "Services" tab and check the box down the bottom right called "Hide all Microsoft services"

From here, you can uncheck all the junk that you don't want running like common update services which include Adobe products, Itunes and java.

Before disabling something that your not sure of, Google the service name so you can understand what you are disabling and know if you need it or not.

Msconfig configuration - Startup
On the startup tab, you can enable/disable all the programs that you want to start up. This helps a lot. For example, when you boot, you normally get programs asking you to update. By disabling them, you no longer get asked for the updates. This means that your boot times will be quicker as your computer does not have to load the update.

By making the "Command" column bigger, you can see what it is running which helps you understand what the program is doing. Example shown below

Also you can ask Windows to use all cores if you have a multi core CPU rather than the single one it is at default.
