The thing to do is to download and install TweakUI from Microsoft.  You can also find it at www.winfiles.com under Windows Shareware/Win95/98 apps/shell and desktop/power toys section.  These "ghost entries" can happen from not uninstalling the software properly, or by using the software's own uninstall feature rather than Windows' add/remove programs feature.  TweakUI has a feature to remove those entries from that field.
