Might be better to look at start, run, MSCONFIG startup tab. You probably have a lot of junk that is taking years to load.

Cheeseypie advice would be better than just blindly going into taskmanger and ending processes on programs that you may need like antivirus, firewall, etc.
Process Explorer on the other hand will give you detail info on what is associated with what process so as to make a more informed decision to what not have in your startups. It's free.
