I don't have that in mine. But, I only have Win 7 64 bit Home version, not Ultimate.

Hello drugo,

The ControlSet001 key is only a backup copy of the actual CurrentControlSet key, so that would be why it's still showing there in the backup. Double check the CurrentControlSet key location to see if it may still be there instead.

I have the key but I have Paragon installed. Sure Paragon wasn't installed a long time ago, then removed? Like maybe you did a trial?

In addition, you could also safely delete the PARAGONBLOCKDEVICE key if you like since it's only in the ControlSet001 backup key.
