Hi Left123,

vistadrv is safe, but it is not necessary, it could also be malicious and a worm, so update to VT to see what it is, http://www.runscanner.net/lib/VistaDrv.exe.html
You can use runscanner to check your Startups,

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

I see no reason for not letting only avast in that list.
I also suggest you try Startup Delayer.
This freeware controls the windows startup (Windows 98\Me\2k\XP\Vista\7) that does not follow a strict order.
The best things in life are free.
