Yes, Joanne, you can use the System Configuration utility (msconfig.exe) for that purpose. Disable those items you prefer not to start automatically when Windows boots by unchecking them on the Startup tab.
If you really want to get into this, the following utility is far better, but a bit more complex.
Windows Defender is included in Windows 7, but Microsoft turns it off when installing some other programs. So I don't recommend you use it.

I'm not the right one to tell you which Toshiba programs should start automatically. (I don't have a Toshiba here.)
I can tell you that HKLM refers to the fact that the item is started by a particular registry key. X64 has to do with the fact that your version of Windows is 64-bit and must simulate a 32-bit environment when running ordinary 32-bit programs.
Where are you looking?
If you want to talk more, tell us which computer and which Windows you have.
