I recently removed the Vundo virus from my computer (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic31163.html), but there were two items created by the virus still left in the Startup tab of the System Configuration Utility window (accessed by Start > Run: msconfig.exe. Click the Startup tab). I am wondering if it is possible to delete those entries. Any help will be appreciated.

As long as you're sure you're not still infected, you can try downloading Autoruns and see if there's anything listed in there and disable it
