    Leave the thing alone. 32bit application such as Autoruns will not see those "invalid" entries (files) in %windir%\syswow64 directory.

    Well just put those entries back manually according to the screenshot. The correct entries also should still be present in the same place under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002 (or 003, etc.)

    And please avoid "optimizing" registry, esp. on fresh installed Windows. All these optimizer tools do more harm than good!

    Well a member with 220 posts hasn't grasped the concept of the registry in Windows? :hypo: Under what rock have you been since 1995?

    Don't feed this troll!
