Hi everbody,

I have two funny lines in my MsConfig/autostart folder. One does not have any name!!
It is totally blank at the place HKLM\SOFTWARE\Windows\Curentversion\Run

The other is %systemroot%\system32\dumrep 0 -u
at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Windows\Curentversion\Run

I ask if these "files" are correct since my machine is slowing down when starting and there are extensive net traffic during the boot process.

Thanks in advance

dumprep.exe forms a part of Microsoft Windows XP (and later versions), in-built fault logging software. Upon serious errors this program will write the details to a text file and request the information be sent to Microsoft.
If ur not having problems with ur PC like frequent crashes, u can disable this.

Blank entry could be something that was not propely deleted.
U should post a HJT log in malware forum, just to be sure that the blank entry was not caused by some malware.
