That is a darn good question. Google turns up a link to this thread and one to a dead end. Maybe someone will jump in with some knowledge on that item. Odd names like that tend to make me a bit nervous.

Are you on XP Home or Pro? Make and model of your PC.

Free download AutoRuns:

http://autoruns.brothersoft.com/autoruns8.73

Easy to use...More efficient than msconfig, which is more of a diagnostic tool than controlling start-up programs from launching...
Download and run...Uncheck the start-up items that you don't want running...If this is malware it may be more difficult process but I would start here...
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

XP home .. HP pavilion a810n .. same here about being nervous ... command is C:\WINDOWS/system ... location is HKM\SOFTWARE\microsoft\windows

I'm not computer savy .. I know only enough to be dangerous.

Incorrect / Incomplete paths don't really help.

If you're not able to disable the entry with Autoruns, (and even if you can),
it cannot hurt to run a full scan with SuperAntiSpyware,
which is pretty adept at dealing with infected registry keys and files.

http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html

Once installed, on the SuperAntiSpyware Main Page,
you can also click on the link at the bottom:

"Find out what's running on your computer!"

You can send in unknown files for analysis; and you'll get
feedback if you supply an email address and there's a problem file or files.

Malwarebytes is also an effective scanner:
