Hi and welcome. You shouldn't delete ANY of them, unless you have a very good reason to, as well as knowing what you're doing.


The Uninstall section contains the applications listed in Add/Remove Programs. The only entries there that can safely be removed are those belonging to software you once had but are certain you uninstalled later. Do not touch anything you do not recognize!


The entries in the Startup section represent applications that launch automatically at boot-time. There again, only have CCleaner remove those entries belonging to software you no longer have installed, or ones associated with known malware.

BTW, here are three databases that can help you identify these entries.

For Startup entries:






When still in doubt, or if unsure what a particular entry stands for, don't hesitate to ask. :)
