Many such items are not really problems. For those that are not a problem don't waste your time.

Your listing, above, mentions BHOs ...

Some applications install browser helper objects (BHOs) ... for integration with Explorer. This can be good, or bad. Good when they make it easy to choose a file from Explorer and have the apps act on that file. Bad when a bug in a poorly written BHO causes Explorer to hang, or otherwise misbehave.

If there's a problem, disable the BHO using ShellExView (freeware).
If there's not a problem, ignore it.
