How to remove redundant entries from the Startup tab of...?

Hi Everyone,

I am wondering if there is any way of removing redundant entries from the list of startup programs shown under the Startup tab of the System Configuration dialogue box, as shown below?

Kind Regards,

I would guess the easiest way is to uninstall the program that installed it to begin with,
Make sure it's checked first/ restart then uninstall.

ccleaner can remove Unknown entries when people forget to recheck the item before uninstalling the program.

You can also use autoruns but it's a dangerous program unless you know what your doing.
