Those are two MS programs which are starting with the computer. If you put your mouse on each listing under the command heading it will tell you what exactly it is: probably MS Security Essentials anti-virus is one? I don't see your AV anywhere else there.

I'd leave both of those MS listings, but the others can be unchecked as they are freeloaders on your Startup and don't need to run until you click on them.
