teatimer is part of Spybot Search and Destroy. Safe

Any from C://WINDOWS are fine to leave

jusched is the java updater and is safe

avgcc is avg control centre - safe

Anything from C://Program Files/ASU is an ASUS utility- safe

Glad to help

CLI Start is part of ATI graphics - safe

dunno about the rest - try googleing - this gives a description of whether safe or not

Ronnie268,thanks for your info but when you say safe do you mean to uncheck it or leave checked to startup Thanks

Generally you want as little as possible to run at startup. You can check each of the items on click here to see whether they should run or not.
