Windows 7 starts up in 30 seconds on most systems when its powder fresh, its all the crap that gets installed that insists on having a loader, adobe is notorious for this.

Having more RAM is good but if you have too many programs auto starting when the windows load I doubt it will help much with start up time unless you have SSD.
At start-up the main bottleneck is HDD as all the programs need to be read from HDD and loaded into the memory.

"Once a service is installed, it can be managed by launching "Services" from the Windows Control Panel → Administrative Tools or typing "Services.msc" in the Run command on Start menu. In Windows Vista and later, it can be started or stopped in the Services tab in Windows Task Manager, where its process can also be found. The "Services" management console provides a brief description of the service functions and displays the path to the service executable, its current status, startup type, dependencies and the account under which the service is running. It enables users to:
Start, stop, pause or restart services.
Specify service parameters.
Change the startup type which includes Automatic, Manual and Disabled:
Automatic starts the services at system logon,
Manual starts a service as required or when called from an application (according to definition, but only some of the time in practice, depending on the service),
Disabled completely disables the service and prevents it and its dependencies from running.
Automatic (Delayed) is a new startup type introduced in Windows Vista, that starts the service a short while after the system has finished its booting and initial busy operations, so that the system boots up faster.
Change the account under which the service logs on.
Configure recovery options upon service failure.
Export the list of services as a text file or a CSV file.
In Windows XP Service Pack 3 and Windows Vista, besides the Services management console, users can manipulate services using MSConfig. The use of MSConfig to manage services, however, causes a prompt on the next startup. MSConfig can hide all operating system services for troubleshooting. Users can also use the SC command in the command prompt."- Wiki
