Should describe what I mean. (Grateful thanks to Djohn for showing how to do this).

There are four registry entries which give no detail except part of their path in the registry. Consedquently I have no idea what they refer to. I have run Adaware and Spybot, both report clear. I have also had a look in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Run. There doesn't seem to be anything amiss in there.

Grateful for any advice that will enable me to track these down.

Just noticed that my machine here at work has exactly the same four nameless entries. The only recent change to both was last Friday when I installed to each the latest version of RealPlayer.

At least I think I can discount a virus now. I will now check the registry keys that could be affected.

right click on the ones without data in the data column and delete. (make a backup of your registry as usual)

Thanks for your help. Now leaves doing the same at home tonight.
