Hi bloomcounty...

As there is no command associated with this entry, it is probably benign and can be left alone. That being said, it can also be removed, but this would require editing the registry.

Click Start, then Run, type regedit and click "Ok". In the left pane, expand (click +) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SOFTWARE, then Microsoft, then Windows, then CurrentVersion, and right click on Run. Choose "Export" from the menu and save the file to your desktop as blankentry.

Then, in the right pane, you should see an entry with no Data (under the Data heading) listed for it...this is the culprit. Right click on it and choose "Delete"...accept the change. Log off and back onto Windows (or reboot) and the entry should be gone from msconfig.
