    Registry key in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local...


    I asked another question about this yesterday and another user responded, however I didn't get the answer I was looking for. They said that the key was legit, but he didn't know about it being in the "AppModel\PolicyCache" branch, so I wanted to know if it was a fake key or not. I can upload a copy of the key as a .txt or .reg if needed. Just please someone help me find out if this is a problem or not.

    :)

    Registry strange behavior in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\...

    I tried to clear all contents of
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts
    then set security permission to logger user name () to be clear from:

    • create key
    • set value
    and let it inherently apply to all keys under it

    But it responds with icons flickering / blinking very often
    so I undo the security setting.. but while keeping on registry browsing under this key I came across:

    1. The jpg filetype key and userchoice key were created
    2. On userchoice key the logging user () ACL was created, and
    3. It's set to DENY on SET VALUE !

    Is it windows 10 behavior or an intruder's been screwing up ?
    Please help me.. many thanks in advance

    Oddly named entries under Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\

    Also a discussion here:

    Well, does anyone know what this stuff is or relates to?

    I find them right after a Clean Install and right after I've assign certain 3rd party programs to certain file types where they'll appear at the very bottom of HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT after the last entry 'Zune'.

    It's a Unicode issue and I've been deleting them for years to no ill effects.

    I just had this happen yesterday with my Clean Install of Windows 11 22H2 when I associated *.webp files with XnView.

    If you scroll up the same *Classes list you'll find the 'webp_auto_file' entry where it shows the shell command it was associated with:

    These Class entries are duplicated in these other keys, but when deleted from HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT get deleted everywhere once you close and reopen Regedit.
