yes I found it "its XMNT2002 "
here is the key
autocheck xmnt2002 /bat="D:\WINDOWS\TEMP\PQ_BATCH.PQB" /win="D:\WINDOWS" /dbg="D:\WINDOWS\TEMP\PQ_DEBUG.TXT" /ver=262144 /prd="PartitionMagic"
autocheck autochk *


the Key name is BootExecute
Should I delete it??

You can if you want. Seems to be for a program, but I'm not much for programs loading at login.
did you look throught the registry for this? not just the first place it poped up? Just making sure...

What hive was this key in? HKLM - HKCU?

You can delete it, there's no reason for it to be there.
