Windows 7: Unknown files when reviewing startup processes

Windows 7 x 64 Home Premium
Unknown files when reviewing startup processes

using Iolo System Mechanic and looking at "Manage Processes that load at Startup" and came across some strange looking files under BootExecute (8).
I did a print screen and am sending it along if anyone has any ideas what these might be I'd appreciate some insight.
No apparent problems with my computer and after following up with msconfig - startup I couldn't see any processes that shouldn't be there.

I would not use any System Mechanic software for Win7. You only need to uncheck everything in msconfig>Startup and >Services (after Hiding All MS Services) to get rid of the freeloaders - everything except a free lightweight AV and any sync, gadgets or stickies. Everything else can wait til you start it.

These and other tips are compiled in the perfect Clean Reinstall Windows 7 which has helped over a million consumers get and keep a perfect install without a single complaint or anyone returning here with problems who stuck with the tools and methods given.

Anything else?
