Decode Office Registry Entries: HKCU\...\Data

Q: Decode Office Registry Entries: HKCU\...\Data

Can anyone point me to a reference for decoding the "toolbars", "settings", "settings word mail", and "toolbars word mail" entries in Vista 64 Registry Entry HKCU\software\microsoft\office\12\word\data

Background and Reason For Asking: For several weeks, when closing Word 2007 SP2 have been getting message "change has been made that affects the global template normal do you want to save these changes". Since I haven't done anything that should have changed it, I don't save. Googling shows that several others have a similar problem. KB291352 and other reports have information on cause and correction, none of which appear to apply in my case.

Today, while working with Microsoft tech support on another Word 2007 issue, the message went away. Some "diagnostic" activity taken by tech support included renaming three HKCU Registry Keys. Afterwards, I reversed these renames on a one-at-a-time basis and found that the HKCU\...\data key is the one that triggers the message. The new and renamed entries are made up of hexadecimal data. My assumption is that one or more of the bit settings is the trigger, and I'd like to decode them to see if the cause can be determined. - Thanks

Preferred Solution: Decode Office Registry Entries: HKCU\...\Data

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

In my HKCU folder—the main folder itself—I have two entries which I haven't seen on other machines: HTTP11SAVED REG_DWORD 0x00000001 (1) and HTTP11SAVED_VAL REG_DWORD 0x00000000 (0). Are they good entries or bad entries?

I'm trying to use Message Analyzer to show captured traffic.
I see a difference with Wireshark about Base64 messages; i.e. if you analyze an http traffic with basic authentication, Wireshark show the original Base64 data and then the decoded text data.
It is possible to do the same with Message Analyzer?

Whatever this infection is, it keeps recreating the following registry key value:
 
regsvr32.exe "C:\Users\llehman\AppData\Roaming\AufOmxu\WeyInba.dll
 
in the HKCU/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run key
 
I delete it and hit F5 and it is back.  Don't know how to tell what is creating it.
 
In addition it seems to be causing Acrobat Reader to crash and a repeating occurance of WerFault.exe that will slow the computer to a crawl.  A reboot will stop the repeating werfault.exe from coming up but opening up a PDF will cause it again.  Reinstalling Acrobat reader does not fix the issue.

What functions are performed by the keys at

?

I know the "Favorites" key registers the items pinned to the Start Menu (and maybe the Taskbar too), but what do the other keys do?
Q2: is there a way to back up only one key instead of having to export/import the entire StartPage folder?

Export the key you wish to back up, right click on the reg entry & select "Edit" & it will open in notepad. Delete the information you don't wish to backup. Hope this is clear enough. Good luck!

Was wondering if anyone can help us solve a logon issue?

Our corporate logon script written in VBScript is designed to write Internet Proxy values to the users HKCU registry hive depending on the physical location of the PC being logged into. We have a number of users that travel between offices and the logon script is not able to write these registry key values to the registry like it does on everyone else in the company.

Today while one of these users was in we replaced his NTUSER.DAT file to rule out the profile but this solved nothing. We then cloned a new account from his existing account. Dispite the fact that the old account always fails, the new account worked flawlessly. Same groups same access, etc. The only differences that we can come up with is the fact that the old logonid has SID history carried over from when his account was migrated from their legacy NT domain to our new Active Directory domain. If I'm not mistaken the SID history would not carry over to the clone even though the permissions did.

So, what I would like to understand is why the new account works great and the old one fails? If it does happen to have something to do with SID history what is it that is causing the regwrites to fail and how would one fix this problem?

Any help would be appreciated.
 

A:Logon script cannot change HKCU settings in registry

Hi wchull, my bet is that you have enabled FolderRedirection for the first account - probably with a GPO. This is a known problem when applying IE proxy settings. First get your user to LOGOFF then LOGON (NOT ShutDown>Restart) do the new settings then appear? GPOs applied to the user won't make it to the Registry hive unless you give the User time to instantiate and later save the results, so when they do appear a second LOGOFF will save them to the profile.

Are you using roaming profiles?

A coworker asked me to look at her laptop (Gateway Viper-SR,Vista Business SP 2) to fix a Citrix-related problem and I ran a full system scan in Safe Mode using MBAM 1.75.0.1300 for standard maintenance. It pulled up 2 entries in the Registry Values Detected section of the log:
 
HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System | DisableRegEdit (HiJack.Regedit)
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System | DisableRegEdit (HiJack.Regedit)
 
There were no other infections or problems detected elsewhere in the system. Her system is not slow or exhibiting any other issues that may indicate an active infection but I don't want to send the machine home until I am reasonably sure there is not a lurking rootkit,etc.
 
Is this just a false positive or a signal to do more extensive testing?

A:[Hijack.Regedit] flagged for registry keys DisableRegEdit (HKCU+HKLM)

I typically see this output from MBAM due to a GPO being in place. Do you know if your organization would have a "prevent registry editing tools" policy in place?

For some reason when I log in it keeps bringing up a a box with the Winnt\system32 files in startup.

I have checked the registry but can't find any startup path to c:\winnt\system32. It doesn't appear in Programs\startup either.

Can anyone help?
 

A:Registry entries

Sometimes we have also this problem. Often it's related to a bad installed / removed program.

Winnt tries to start something that isn't there anymore. You should check your RUN registries for any abnormal item (link to old program for example).

Hkey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run ...

Good luck,

I had an "issue" that warranted a look into the registry and so I opened it up and saw a lot of "weird" entries. Now, let this be said, I've only been using Vista for about a year and I never really went in the Vista registry before, so I'm not sure what a "weird" entry is by Vista terms, but these look weird. Please take a look at the attached image and give me your opinion. Is there something wrong here? If so, what should I do?

Personally, I don't think it's weird. Even though I'm not an expert on the Vista registry, but I do know that you don't know what to expect when looking at your registry.

To see if you really have a registry problem or not, you should download a registry cleaner.

From time to time, I visit my registry. The following odd entries are new since I last looked. They appear to be empty and maybe even corrupt.

Are they safe to remove? Is there any program that would identify these and mark them as removable? this is XP Sp2, if that matters. Only keys like this are in this hive.

Appreciate any input. Thanks.

2. Can I safely remove those entries manually ? Will they come back ? And will it hurt windows ?
 

A:bad entries in registry

First of all you shouldn't be using any registry cleaners. We don't recommend their use because they often cause more harm than good.

Having said that, we'd have to know exactly which keys are being detected and their values but I suspect they are ones that are doing good in the registry by blocking access to those sites that are put there by a security program you're running.

So please give us a sample.

Welcome to TSG

Go to http://www.merijn.org/files/HijackThis.exe and download 'Hijack This!'.
make sure it is placed into it's own folder, not a temporary folder. Then doubleclick the Hijackthis.exe.
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log (in the security section)
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

If Merijn.org is still down due to the DDOS attack on it, the alternative download sites for Hijackthis are:

Thats the problem with installing and un-installing many apps. Junk left in registry. Now there are cleaners (CCleaner) but they can cause more harm than they fix. I would leave it alone unless there is a compelling reason not to and if you intend to install something make a backup just before so if it turns out you dont like it you can restore to just before the install.

If you have had Spybot's TeaTimer feature enabled during your attempts at using HJT (which we don't recommend anyone without training do, BTW), that may well be what is keeping them from being truly fixed. The O16 entries are from legit programs which appear to have been uninstalled. I have highlighted in GREEN the related programs for these entries.

Before we begin the fix, we need to unload Spybot's Teatimer. To do this, right-click on the icon in the quick launch toolbar at the bottom on the screen, then select "Exit".

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Since installing Office 2007 (over Office 2000) recently, I often encounter delays in opening Office 2000 Word files. Furthermore, I am sometimes unable to open them unless I move them to a 'trusted' directory. So I defined a trusted directory, moved the file(s) there, and can work. But when I just now tried to open an Office 2000 Word file, I received a different error message, namely ' You are attempting to open a file type that is blocked by your registry policy setting.', with instructions to disable the restriction via regedit. When I looked at the registry data, there was no 'Office' tab whatsoever under the Microsoft tab beneath Policies. So I'm unable to edit the registry to 'unblock' access to such legacy files.

I ran a check of my registry and found at least 4 new entries. After getting rid of them, I could launch Mailwasher again.
 
Something, it seems, is able to keep slapping my PC through registry entries.
 
Question: Is there an app I can use where any new registry entry has to pass only with my permission?  I don't think I'd need it long. (I hope).
 
I've always wondered why registry entries aren't able to be policed by the user, when they try to enter without my knowledge. The registry is the heart of an OS, yet entries can be made by other people without my knowledge. I'd call that a major vulnerability.
 
How can I get control of that?

Change on both the "Start" from 3 to 4. Only side effect is the increase of temperatures by a couple of degrees.

Reboot and your benchmarks should be higher.

A:Need help identifying certain registry entries

I think those registry settings control the processor's power saving states. Setting start value to 4 disables those and consequently disables the cpu's power throttling. Basically, it lets you run the processor at max performance all the time, so game performance may improve. Naturally, this will make the processor consume more power, generate more heat and run fans noisily all the time.

As with any other reg mod, there may be unintended consequences, so proceed with caution. Have a backup of the registry, create a system restore point and if possible image your system.

I've deleted software from my PC. I used the uninstall process that came with the software. I've had to delete the reference in my Program folder. I noticed that the registry still has at least one reference to the deleted software. How can I identify all registry references created by this software and how could I delete them?

After uninstalling a particular software program, I performed a manual search of my registry just to see if all instances of the program were deleted from the registry, when I stumbled on the following: Within the
HKEY_CURRENT_USER...\Zonemap\Domains section of the registry are hundreds of domain names of websites that I never ever visited - a large portion of the of the websites listed are definitely porn (some of the domain names are sexual in nature or simply contain the "f" word) : Why would my registry (Windows 7) have a large list of websites that I've never been to AND can I delete those from my registry without screwing things up? Thank you

My computer was infected with Trojan.Win32.FakeAV.oq(v).

Now I selectively can't get the Malabytes Anti-Malaware (MBAM) service to install - it does not appear in services.msc nor in the services tab of msconfig. I have done everything Malabytes' instructions say to do several times.

Here is what remains in my registry after the latest round of uninstalling and running Malabytes' MBAM cleaner, which allegedly removes every trace of the program from your computer. It didn't even remove all the files.

I need to know what thse mean and whether to remove them. MBAM is not currently installed on my system. I need it clean of whatever may be blocking it from installing properly in order to reinstall and run it. Googling LEGACY_MBAMSERVICE led me to a closed discussion on this forum, so apparently there are people here who would know the answer, though unfortunately I did get the idea it might not have been the experts on the forum who finally dug up the answer.

Can anyone tell me why I get over 100 invalid registry entries after a clean install of Windows XP Professional? I installed RegCleaner immediatley after installing the OS (I also formatted the HD before I installed the OS) and ran it. I came up with over 100 invalid entries. Does anyone know if these entries were performed by the installer in Windows or is it from somethig else?
I am not sure if it is safe to remove these entries yet.
Any info is appreciated.
Happy Holidays
