    Use Root Explorer to rename anything you don't want to run. *.apk to *.apk.bak or whatever you want.

    you need to enable R/W (read/write) mode - it's the R/W button at the top of the screen in root explorer

    I like "Startup auditor" for this. Just easier. And it keeps them closed if you like!
