    Any idea what these Japanese-looking registry entries are?


    Hello,

    Whilst trying to sort out something on a friend's computer, I noticed some odd-looking registry entries...


    Any idea what these Japanese-looking registry entries are? [​IMG]


    These may be perfectly innocent, but then again, she is English, with Hebrew installed on her machine, so no oriental language packs at all, so I would be surprised to see such registry entries.

    We ran CCCleaner on her machine, and it didn't flag these up. Don't know if that's any proof of anything!

    We exported them, here are the contents of the exported .reg files...
    Any way of finding out where they came from, and if they should be there?
    Thanks

    :)

    Miscellaneous Registry entries?

    W1zzard: Miscellaneous Registry entries?

    For W1zzard,

    *Respect :respect:

    What are the registry entry names and data types for the Miscellaneous entries:

    Currently selected Catalyst A.I. level, and Geometry Instancing Enabled?

    I can't find anything that looks like those that are defined in that registry key, and I have to manually set them everytime I reboot my PC. *Frown Any idea what these Japanese-looking registry entries are? :(

    It would be nice to be able to keep them set across reboots. *Smile Any idea what these Japanese-looking registry entries are? :)

    Or are they taken care in version 0.25b11? I'm currently using 0.24.

    japanese/strange characters in registry?

    hey guys. im looking for some help here. i noticed in my registry under hkey_current_user there are entries that appear to have japanese characters and/or strange characters. google translate recognized some as japanese but couldnt translate them.

    there's not a ton but there are a few. 5/16 are displaying in either the japanese or the strange characters. they all have two folders inside. "cache2" and "ext". they each have a reg_sz and a reg_dword inside of them.

    i try to be precautionary with my system and i have ran a full avast scan in the last week and just today i ran a full threat scan with mbam offline. neither turned up anything. seeing these registry items has me in a bit of a panic though. my system is not
    behaving abornally or displaying issues.

    should i leave them alone since i'm not encountering any issues? any/all advice would be much appreciated. thanks!
