What is the best way to uninstall Speed Startup. Will the original set of startup items (all those that were running before speed startup was installed) be restored, or will ALL available startup items be restored.

The best thing to do is to go into Speed Startup and restore the startup items that you want to restore. During uninstall Speed Startup will attempt to restore all of the items that it has removed but it is not always 100% successful at that.
Another question regarding uninstalling SPeed Startup. If I uncheck speed startup in msconfig, will my computer run like it did before speed startup was installed? If not, I suggest that you revise speed startup so that it saves a list of active (pre-speed startup) startup items.
The main problem that I am having with speed startup is that some program updates require reboots that initiate the speed startup set-up cycle.
No, removing Speed Startup from msconfig will not cause your computer to run like it did before. When you have Speed Startup remove a startup item, it removes it. But Speed Startup does keep backups so if you want an item back, just restore it. It does not sound like you are having a problem with Speed Startup. It sounds like you are having a problem with something else. I do not know how a reboot would initiate the Speed Startup set up cycle.
When I update AnyDVd, it automatically chooses "Run at Startup" and "Automatically Check for Updates". I disable these startup items, through the AnyDVD software, after the update. During the update process, reboots are sometimes required. Since "new" startup items are added, Speed Start-up recognizes new start up item(s) and goes thru the set up cycle. AnyDVD issues updates approximately once per month.
I have not yet uninstalled speed startup. I am still trying to decide whether or not to do so. This program , for me, has resulted in more hassles than it is worth. HOWEVER, I have been VERY SATISFIED with several of your other programs which I have purchased over the years (Winrescue ME, Winrescue XP, Winrescue Vista, Regvac and XP Recovery CD). I am NOT asking for a refund for Speed Startup.
