I would be weary on trying to remove everything except for Avast and Zone Alarm from your startup because you do not know exactly what your computers software might need in startup to work properly. Perhaps maybe post a hijackthis log so someone could better assist you on helping you remove what is not really needed in your startup.

In msconfig you can put them back by just rechecking them.

FWIW: Msconfig does not reflect all startup items.
