    I've just run msconfig to check whats happening at startup and noticed that I have a blank space with the location HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.

    I've had a quick look around the net concerning this and checked out the address in my registry and don't think it's anything suspicious. Indeed I think it was Steam which created this entry prior to me telling it not to start at startup... there was a file called steam there.

    Anyway being a picky git I'd like to delete the blank instance from my startup tab in my System Configuration Utility. ;)

    Does anyone know how I would go about doing this? Since all I'm given the option to do is turn it off in msconfig. :confused:

    do it the manual way. start, run, regedit

    browse to the location above and then delete the entry in the right hand pane. simple. :)
