I recommend you uninstall AVG and replace it with MSE as it is lighter, better detection and doesn't freeze the system.

Don't mess with things (Presumably System Files) you do not know about, just use MSConfig or CCleaner's Built In Startup Manager to disable Startup Entries, which is a lot safer.


How to use Msconfig

1. Go to Start and type in the Search Box, "msconfig" and open it.

2. Press Windows Key + R at the same time to open the "Run" box, in there type "msconfig" and press OK or Enter..

I would start by using msconfig (built-in) or CCleaner to show you an easier to read list. Usually, with a simplified list, it is easy to spot what's required and what's not.
