    I was using the Startup Manager and found that it had two entries for MSC:

    MSC {HKLM:Run}
    MSC {HKLM:Run}

    When I right click on the second one and select “Show Details” I get an “Unhandled exception” error dialog box, “Object reference not set to an instance of an object”. Here are the details.

    System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
    at StartupManager.Form1.ShowDetailsToolStripMenuItem_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)
    at System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem.RaiseEvent(Object key, EventArgs e)

    at System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem.HandleClick(EventArgs e)
    at System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem.HandleMouseUp(MouseEventArgs e)
    at System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem.FireEventInteractive(EventArgs e, ToolStripItemEventType met)
    at System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem.FireEvent(EventArgs e, ToolStripItemEventType met)

    at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.WndProc(Message& m)
    at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr

    I presume that this means that there is a problem with the MSC entries in my registry and I need to track that down and fix it.
    System Ninja reports the details of the first one correctly and says “Do not remove”.

    Is there anything listed under the “File” column heading for the second MSC entry?

    It should have something like: “C:Program FilesMicrosoft Security Clientmsseces.exe” -hide -runkey”

    Hello Shane,

    Yes. Both entries have an identical file:

    G:Program FilesMicrosoftSecurity Clientmsseces.exe” -hide -runkey

    Please note that the unbalanced quote is not a typo.

    The “Save list to text file…” options doesn’t seem to save the file names.

    I just took a look at the system with Startup Inspector v.211. It finds only one MSC entry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. So I’ve pulled out Regedit and taken a look myself. It finds only one entry for MSC with that full command line in LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWindwosCurrentVersionRun

    Hope that helps.

    This is an error message I’ve added to stop the program crashing when this bug is occurring. It will have to do until I can work out why it’s happening.

    Are you also running Windows XP x32?
