Download and run Autoruns (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx) to analyse and alter your "start-up list".

If you need advice of what you can remove safely, run ARDiag.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/ardiag.exe) and post the report.

deleting entries removes them from the registry (but the files remain intact)

You don't need to delete the entries actually. Unchecking them already prevents them from autorunning. You need to delete only entries confirmed to be ad/mal/crapware and viruses.
