If you looked in the registry at the path mentioned, you might have a better idea what was directed to load at startup. Sometimes, incorrect "uninstalls" can cause such issues.. If nothing was there, then you could delete the blank registry entry and the listing in "msconfig" would also go away.
It's always a good idea to make a backup of the registry before doing such things though...
Hope this helps.
I was going through the msconfig startups to get rid of a few of the icons in the tray when I noticed one that had nothing listed. just a checked box with a blank space and listing HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run list as the path.
Any idea what this could be?
I unchecked it just in case.
