Windows 7: Registry section information

"I'm not sure if it'll harm anything, but it's not needed. See if you can modify the (Default) key by deleting its contents so that it end up with the value of '(value not set)'. Reboot and recheck it to see that it stays that way and that the BootExecute entry remains as is (because it now looks good)."


I did change it, rebooted and it stayed the same. I have created a restore point each time though. Does this look OK now?

"Were you searching with 'keys', 'values' and 'data' all selected?"

I don't know. I just did search.


"I wonder how your BootExecute key got so discombobulated to begin with."

I don't know. I'm guessing that either that Dell tech in India that was installing stuff to try to get my card reader to work or the guy at Monoprice that sent me the special software to get my tablet to work. It took me about a week to undo what the Dell tech did.

Do you still have the following key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\WMI\Autologger

That was one of the erroneous data entries within the BootExecute key. It should be a key in and of itself, not necessarily as data within a key.

Good. So you seem to be back in good shape. Like you mentioned before, give it a few days run time if you want before marking it solved. Good luck!

One other thing that I forgot. Dell recommended and I bought Iolo System Mechanic 10. It is supposed to be so great. It really screwed up my PC before I removed it.

How do you get the small quote boxes without quoting the whole page?

Ah, I see. Just FYI, the only "miracle" optimizer program I trust is CCleaner (it might be inappropriate to put CCleaner in that category). But I very rarely use it, and when I do run it I make sure to make a backup of the registry and then use it to manually remove the entries it identifies. I don't expect (and don't get) performance improvements from using it; it's basically just to keep the machine clean of useless crud.

Just by manipulating/adding the "quote tags":
