I've been lurking here for some time and have gotten some excellent hints on cleaning up my computer. I have a question that does not seem to be addressed anywhere on the site.

One line in my start-up list is missing the entry under "Startup Item" and "Command". The "Location" portion of the line is as follows; "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run". My inclination is to uncheck that line and move on. What do you guys think?

Thanks for your help.

Well...I think I would just use regedit to go to that particular registry line...and see what items might be detailed there...before making a decision.

If no items are there...it's up to you.

The problem with RUN and RUN ONCE entries that I have...is that any application is liable to insert one into your system during program install. So I keep an eye on such, using Autoruns.
