You're running Ad-Aware 2007 during startup but unless it's the paid version not sure that it does much running all the time. What piece of it do you use that it has to run all the time?
Basically you need to review all these applications that are set to START and RUN every time you start the computer. If you're not actively using these programs then I would suggest stopping them from running and manually launch them when you do want to use them.
Do you know how to use Regedit? Start Regedit and browse to this location
Then on the file menu select File Export
and save a copy of the current entries to a new file somewhere you will remember where it is and give it a name you will remember.
I would use a name like 2008-06-30-(15-20)HKLMSMWCR.REG That is the date, time, and key location.
Then review all the entries and and delete those items that you do not need to start every time.
Also do the same thing for this key.
I don't want to just randomly delete these items but here is a list of what is currently running each time you start up the computer.

Items I would consider not loading or starting every time the pc starts up.
CTHELPER.EXE (is is a Creative Labs plugin helper for the sound card, though if not used why load it)
H2O (is probably a game hack to bypass a dongle, again probably not needed to run all the time if not used)
SunJavaUpdateSched (as long as you check for updates on your own no need to load)
BluetoothAuthenticationAgent (do you use bluetooth every time you use the computer, if not don't load)
Sony Ericsson PC Suite (same as others, if not used every time don't load it)
Lexmark X1100 Series (doubt you print every day and need to manage the printer supplies so why load it)
NeroCheck (Burning Rom, looks for known driver conflicts with Nero software, can be removed it you don't have problems with Nero)
amd_dc_opt (From my understanding this is an optimizer tool to help the timing when playing older games you may not need it, though it should not be a resource issue either if you do keep it)
Adobe Reader Speed Launcher (you can probably wait an additional couple seconds for the reader to load if needing to read a PDF)
QuickTime Task (not needed)
iTunesHelper (not needed)
ALCMTR.EXE - more information ALCMTR.EXE startup
KernelFaultCheck (Unless you're always having crashing problems you probably don't need, but should not be a resource issue either)
StartCCC - more information here StartCCC
MagicDisc.exe (unless you're using for virtual disks not needed on startup)
StarOffice (not needed on startup)
Please check and disable any items you feel you can do without. Then run the following disk check.
Click on START - RUN
and type in CMD /K CHKDSK C: /F
then press the Y
key to say yes to check the disk on reboot. Then restart your computer and let the disk check run.
You should also probably remove this folder if it was part of Party Poker. C:\Program Files\PartyGaming
Then I would highly recommend
updating to IE7 and Service Pack 3 from Microsoft.
