im a complete novice and require advice on fixing a small problem.
when i boot my pc , xp home os, im getting , briefly,the following messages on a blue screen, after which, the pc then runs normally.
x]o program not found skipping autocheck
c]o program not found skipping autocheck

ive googled the messages and have been informed that the problem is a result of a corruption in the BootExecute , in the registry. i have to delete the multi-string, which , at present, consists of the word autocheck twice and a number of symbols and replace it with the default :-
autocheck autochk *.

i double click BootExecute, which opens a Edit Multi-String box containing ."value name" ie. BootExecute, and "value data" as below


autocheck x}0U!&
autocheck }0pD!DM
autocheck lsdelete

my question is, do i simply delete the present "value data" and type the default autocheck autochk * into the box and click ok.
am i correct that there is a space between the two words and another before the asterisk.
this is the first time ive been into the registry and all the warnings ive heard and read have made me wary of mistakes, so i ask for understanding as a novice.

Warning #1 - Backup your registry before proceeding. Changes such as this have the potential to render your system unbootable. Without a copy of this key, it may not be possible to easily repair the system in case of an error.

Warning #2 - If given instructions to change something, always copy/paste rather than retyping. This will prevent misunderstandings and will help to avoid the situation in Warning #1

So, that being said, backup the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager key by right clicking on it and selecting "Export". Pick a file name for it (it'll end in .reg) and save it to your Desktop.

Then open the BootExecute key and delete the data that you've mentioned. Then copy and paste the stuff inside the Code box below this sentence. Save your changes and exit Regedit. Reboot to see if this has fixed the issue.
autocheck autochk *

FWIW - Yes, there's a space between autocheck and autochk - and another space between autochk and the *
Also have access to another system "just in case" your system doesn't boot. That way you can still post for assistance if everything goes south on you.

I'd leave it there for a week or two - then delete it to the Recycle Bin where it'll be emptied when it gets full. That way you're still protected "just in case"
