In the System Configuration Start up menu there is something with no name and under command it is blank also.
The location is: HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run.
Can someone tell me what this is?

don't you hate that !
create a restore point , do it right now it only takes a minute, then go to Start --> Run type regedit , click ok.

navigate to HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run in regedit program and delete the blank entry(right-click on entry)
you'll see it. it will have an icon beside a blank entry.

now close the program , don't go routing around in there, just close the program
reboot

whatever it is or was will not be running now, watch for error messages on re start.

No it does`t. May be able to back-up the key to the desktop for example.......But it being blank maybe not.

Perhaps the entire registry can just be exported just in case.

yer
am sure scanreg works
just run it and at the end of its scanning it will say do you want to back up the registry(says that if your registry has no problems)

to get it:START>RUN>type SCANREG

if there is no System Restore you can back up the registry by opening the registry editor (run -->regedit) and selecting export from the File menu.

then you can proceed with the registry entry deletion explained above.
