    Tried to add a new key while running regedit as System. Nada. Next step would be to maybe try psexec or offline while booted from win8 disk/usb.

    Did you try to take a ownership through changing the permission on that Registry-key?

    Actually a PCBeta guy had already done that and removed all the keys, and it seems it made no difference, maybe it's not controled by that part of the registry, maybe there is something in the dll's, no idea atm. :eek:

    w4l: he is just "one of the guys" trying to break the code, for all I know Paul T. is also working on it.

    Hmm noticed that if you copy an existing link and rename, and update the desktop.ini, then reboot its permanet in the menu.
    But once you change the link, its removed from the menu.:confused:
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
