I think that the programs that are in the run entry in the registry run before ones in the startup folder in the startmenu, so you could put all the ones you want to load first into the registry, and the other ones in the startmenu.

The registry folders you want are :
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\run
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\run

You could also try disabling unimportant startup items using the System Configuration Utility (go start->run and type msconfig to load)

and P.S. remember to back up your registry first and all that stuff
