Does anyone know how to remove startup items you don't
want listed in the System Config Utility Startup I have
ones that i've unchecked over time and don't want them
listed anymore in there.

Thanks
Craig

Notice that there is a Location field in the display of the Config Utility.
You have to remove the entries from these locations

Mostly that will be in the registry, though some could be in the startup
folder.

To edit the registry, run regedit, browse to the location specified and
delete the item.
Be careful as misuse of the registry editing tool can cause problems.
