One of the Windows 8 machines I use appears to have GoogleDrive listed twice in the start-up programs - I cannot get rid of this. I cant disable or remove one. If I un-install GoogleDrive and re-install then I get two instances again - see pic

How can I resolve this ?

That is normal.  You will also see that you have two instances of gupdate (google updater).  I am under the impression that one is the user part and the other is the system part.
