Why do you care if a particular ap is on the list as long as it is not starting when Windows starts?
Attempting to remove the list's entries will involve alteration to the registry which unless you are expert at the registry is only asking for problems.
If this is something that is just driving you crazy and you feel you must remove these (not recommended as they do no harm in just being listed there as long as they are disabled), download and install Startup Inspector which is much easier and safer to use than msconfig and has a delete option. It also helps you identify what ap is connected with the startup entry so you do not accidently disable your av, anti-malware aps, firewall, etc.
Startup Inspector (freeware)http://www.windowsstartup.com/download.php
The other available freeware ap on that page, Startup Monitor, is also a worthwhile ap to have. It monitors your startup list and requires your permission before anything can add itself to your startup list as many programs do even though it isn't necessary for them to be on it.
Before you alter anything or use any ap to alter anything it is always a good idea to back-up your registry and set a System Restore point so if you experience any problem it can be easily addressed.
