    This is a fairly recent insall of Windows 10 on a new PC so I haven't yet gone thoroughly gone through using Msconfig and/or a startup manager to disable or delete startup items including services and processes.

    Looking at Windows 10 task manager it has many more items running on bootup, many appear to be unnecessary or items I don't use. E.g. there's a Microsoft Skype process that I seem to remember disabling that's now back again as Microsoft Skype (2).

    After installing Marwarebytes I now see a Malwarebytes service running.

    There's many others I don't really have a need for such as e.g. Microsoft Store, etc.

    I have over 70 processes running, some of which are necessary however many may not be and probably should be disabled or removed.

    Startup items isn't quite as bad as they can be fairly easily disable / enable or removed. However some processes and sometimes startup items can be more difficult to disable or remove.

    Sometimes it better to start by disabling unneeded services from services.msc by first stopping the service and changing it from automatic to manual or disabling.

    Some services only needed rarely I sometimes change from automatic to manual and I set turn it on or set to automatic only when needed.

    Years ago in earlier version of windows the software developers often asked users if they wanted a service installed, today many of the softwares installs all sorts of garbage that potentially can slow down or cripple a PC even it's not classified as malware.

    I'm surprised at the number of processes that by default are installed under a virgin install of Windows 10.

    Years back while running earlier versions of windows I remember using a startup and process manager that would provide definition of the different processes and what they did by just clicking on the process, would open an online webpage with details about the process. I haven't really looked but imagine there are similar process managers for Windows 10? Not only edits startup items but also running processes that may be configured as auto or manual and stopped or running.

    SysInternals AutoRuns is an invaluable tool for this purpose. The Process Explorer is another very useful tool that may help.
