  1. Windows 10 Registry Key Question


    Hello to the Microsoft Community,


    I stumbled across something I would like to ask the community about.


    I was poking around the registry on one of my two workstations and saw something that may be nothing at all, but it's the first time I have seen registry keys like this.


    If, perchance, some other symbols are used in the registry, such as the Chinese pictograms that define the keys but not the values that are inhabiting my registry, would it not stand to reason that if the keys are valid for any purpose, that they would have to be called using the same pictograms, no?


    The only evidence are the key values which are legible, and I believe ejw_auto_file refers to a filename extension, but I cannot find any reference to this string, I am familiar ovpn as an extension for OpenVPN location files. Here is another matter. I would have liked to perform a system restore, just to see the outcome, but I had done a restore earlier in the day, and it was the oldest I had on the system.


    I have a summary of three questions and have attached three examples below with the hopes that someone may offer an educated guess as to why they would exist.


    1. As stated above, would it be true that a Chinese named registry key would have to be called by an API that was Chinese, or used the symbols? I hope this question is not as infantile as it sounds. I ask because I know that registry strings are typically structured in Unicode.


    2. The data strings - they do indicate a filename extension, yes? Is it an indicator of anything, at all?


    3. Have keys like this been seen by anyone in the community?


    See the images below. I thank all of you in advance for taking the time to look at this. I appreciate it.


    In Peace

  2. windows 10 key

    Thanks but I don't want to do any decrypting. I want to download a Win 10 ISO from Microsoft and install it using my Win 8 key. No other steps required. Is that possible?

  4. Windows 10 Registry Key Question

    Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Nope, you need to install Windows 10 first and make sure the Windows 7 key is transferred to your Windows account after you've installed Windows 10 (not quite sure how that works). I missed the last step and I could not activate Windows 10 after a re-install... Microsoft seem to have done everything they can to make it a PITA. Also, it's technically too late to do this now anyhow, as the upgrade offer has expired. But KMSPico works quite well...

    As for getting rid of Windows, delete the Windows folder.
