I have a blank entry too in msconfig (win xp home) and I unchecked it (bad advice from HP support) and rebooted and now when I put a check mark by it...it won't stay checked for me to find a blank entry in the "run" key. I didn't see any blank entrys in my run key (probably because it's unchecked). Any idea on how to get rid of this possible phantom (ran a virus scan and I'm clean).
I wouldn't worry about it. But if you care, it appear that MSConfig moves it to HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Shared Tools/MSConfig/startupreg
I have found a blank entry in Msconfig .. in a win xp pro box sp1 . this is how I told my friend to fix it.. I found it was something with java ..
1. go to START then RUN: type: regedit
2. browse to :
3. Once in RUN look Under Name: "(Default)"
If you right chick on "(Default)" and click "Modify Binary Data", NOT "MODIFY in bold" and put 0 it will show "0 0" then make sure value is save and run msconfig... U will see the entry is not named and doesnt show the path. (Hideing)
4. If you do the same thing and right click "(Default)" and MODFIY BINARY DATA not the bold MODIFY and del the "0 0" entry and just add 1 it will show now "1 0" make sure its save F5 to refresh screen and now re-open msconfig... under startup it show now tell you the path .. I found out it was a program called Jusched.exe one we have running already install by JAVA in program Files.
5. to remove it the hidden entry just right click on (Default) and press Delete and agree to delete entry restart msconfig and should be gone.
it looks they just had another jusched.exe running but hidden from the API witch is consider a rootkit but ... its java so who knows what there doin .. ne ways hopes this helps ttyl
why is this happening leo can u please help im not even sure but know how to stop I just want to know WHY?
msconfig in Win98se doesn't have any location column, right? What to do in such a case?
On Dan's problem posted 11/27/2005, if you go to control panel and open up the Java Control Panel, go to the Update tab, and uncheck the button that says 'Check for updates automatically'. This will make the 'jusched.exe' go away in your startup menu.
Fine, but there's no Java Control Panel in Control Panel in Win98SE.
My blank entry says it's in HIKCU.I went to the registery and can find nothing there.I also had 2other entries with little square boxes.what is this?I'm sure i have a virus from the way my comp.,is acting only when i go on line. i downloaded incontrol and got rid of the little square boxes entry.But because this one has no name it can't get rid of the one with no name,and i can't either
I have 2 blanks in my start up item list. When I looked in my reg edit and followed the path, I discovered the blank to be located next to Netscape. The Data list is empty. Normally I would have just deleted this entry, but seeing as how my ISP is Netscape, I am somewhat hesitant. What is really puzzling is, I have used Netscape for over 4 years now, on the same computer, but the blank entries just recently appeared. They were never there before.
Other things seemed to happen at the same time and I can't seem to find out what's going on. For instance; my virus protection refuses to update. I have 2 separate programs Norton and AVG), both programs appear to be working fine. They scan the system, they download the updates, and they have detected and quarantined some pretty nasty villians. But something different is going on.
Although the updates seems to be successful, my monitor says they're not. It says they are still still out of date, even though though the update just completed. It's like something is blocking the library file for the programs. When I ran a symantec security scan, it says I don't have any antivirus software installed, yet the program is there and running.
What would cause my system to think there isn't any virus software installed, when there actually is. What would keep both of them from updating?
I have uninstalled and reinstalled both versions several times and nothing seems to be making a difference. I have had these programs on my system for over 3 years and they have always worked just fine. Why would they suddenly stop updating? Both version are the lastest versions available. Is there a virus that is capable of blocking your antivirus software?
One more thing, if you have a blank in your start up item list and the process name is;
they are worms.
system32.exe is added by AGOBOT_KU and always has a blank entry
pathex.exe is added by MKMOOSE_A and is always a blank entry field
I aslo have that problem except in the start up and command lines there is small boxes. the text is missing any answer to that, that would be awesome.
I also had a blank entry,but I also have an entry that has the number 1 and location 1,do you know what this might be?
