Part of item missing in Startup.

  Meshuga 16:39 31 Dec 2007

Having gone via Start-run-msconfig to Startup I notice that there is one item in which the little box is ticked but under the heading of startup item it is blank and the same applies under Command. Under the heading of Location it reads "HKCU\software\microsoft\windows,current version. I have run a search for that last line which comes up as Nothing found. Unticking the box achieves nothing. How do I get rid of this as it appears there is nothing to get rid of and how can I find out what it is please.

Start menu/run, type regedit, press return, go to

check the entries, export the key before deleting anything.

Have done as you suggest Re HKEY_current user etc and on reaching "Run" 2 items are shown.
One says Default. REG_SZ. Value not set.
The other says WEB Cam R Reg_SZ.
Which of these do I export, How do I export them, and where do I export them to. Lastly, are they restorable.
