Both Find Fast (findfast.exe) and Office Startup (osa.exe) are used by
Removing FindFast frint the startup group will slow down finds through the
start button. It is basically a very scaled down indexing server.
Office Startup (OSA.EXE) from what I can tell, is maily used by the Office
Removing these will NOT have any really bad effects at all.
