A foreign file name in Registry. - Microsoft Answers

I would start scanning. Try Malwarebytes as suggested in the link above, and maybe a few others.

OK - what did you scan with out of interest?. Did you install anything recently? What prompted you to locate this in the registry?

That pc you have attached shows the entries have to do with F4 patch that (google tells me) has to do with falcon 4. That sounds like a game. How are those entries bothering you?

No, my bad, its a different key. Well, just backup this offending key (right click, export), then delete it. If all goes well, delete the backup.

As the key appears empty, it seems it would be OK to delete it, though I would be interested to see if it has any other implications i.e. I'd run CCleaner's Registry tool and jv16 PowerTool's Registry cleaner just to see if either of these report other errors related to this wierd entry.

I also have Comodo Programs Manager and would open that to see if it's listed as an installed program there, and if there is a date associated with it, because correlating a date to folders created on the same date could give more clues as to how it got onto your PC in the first place.

But then I'm a natural worrier, with plenty of time to do such investigations...
