I am currently making a program that automatically cleans up infected computers, and optimizes them for performance. This program will be distributed freely once it is completed.

As part of cleaning up infected computers, I want to remove undesired startup entries and was hoping to be able to access this database to do so. Is there a location where my program could download a copy of this list when it runs?

No. Unfortunately we do not allow the use of our database for these methods as the risks of false positives are too great.
