1) if the entries are derogatory, they go away after 7 years.

2) the ones that are not derogatory are the ones you want to stay on your credit reports, because they help calculate the age of your credit... the older your credit history is, the higher and more beneficial to your score it is.

NEVER try to remove accounts that were closed in good standing. That would damage your credit.
