1: It's better to use I think.

Reason: If you say アレックスは削除してもよろしいですか, people will think there are other things/persons that supposed to be removed sometime. In other words, is just not natural.

2: スタート is correct to use in this circumstance.

Reason: スタート is widely used especially in games and competitions.
