Also,since Yellow means missing entry,

is that something to worry about,

and if so can it be corrected?

Thanks

What you call pink, I call red.
Yellow. Not a worry, they are mostly leftovers from uninstalled applications. The Sysinternals drivers,  like PROCEXP<ver>.sys, may also show up because of the way the Sysinternals tools work. They extract the driver from within the .exe,  load it and then delete it from disk.

If items are highlighted yellow, does that mean you can safely delete them since they are not able to be located anyways? Or will deleting yellow items possibly have disastrous consequences?

yaneuland,
i can tell you what i did,
1..created system restore point
 and simply unchecked the yellow entries at startup
one at a time,after which i rebooted
Did NOT delete them,
Please note that if you try same,
will be at your own risk.
Didn't create any problems for me so far though.
