What is the default value of the bootexecute in Windows Vista (HKLM/SYSTEM/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager --- BootExecute)????
I checked my XP pc and the BootExecute value is set to autocheck autochk /k:C /k:D *. But with my other pc (Vista), the BootExecute contains strange entries like ??//\? =/??. Do I need to change it to its default value even if I am not experiencing any problems with starting up/ booting my laptop?? Thanks in advance!!!

IMO it's "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

But, to further confuse the issue, both my 64 bit Vista and my 32 bit VM of Vista list autocheck autochk *
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
