Hi, I was getting rid of some leftover stuff in my registry.
I came upon these entrys that i did'nt know about. This is just a portion of them.
Does anyone know what they are? To me they look like game titles.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MS-DOS Emulation\AppCompat\COMANCHE.EXEHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MS-DOS Emulation\AppCompat\DRACULA.EXEHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MS-DOS Emulation\AppCompat\FOOTBALL.EXEHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MS-DOS Emulation\AppCompat\INDYCAR.EXEHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MS-DOS Emulation\AppCompat\LOTUS.EXEHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MS-DOS Emulation\AppCompat\OREGON.EXEHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MS-DOS Emulation\AppCompat\PACIFIC.EXEHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MS-DOS Emulation\AppCompat\PINBALL.EXEHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MS-DOS Emulation\AppCompat\RODNEYS.EXEHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MS-DOS Emulation\AppCompat\SERPENT.COMHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MS-DOS Emulation\AppCompat\SYMPHONY.EXEHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MS-DOS Emulation\AppCompat\THROTTLE.EXEHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MS-DOS Emulation\AppCompat\VIKINGS.EXEHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MS-DOS Emulation\AppCompat\ZEPHYR.EXE

I've come a very long way. Just to find out, I still have a long way to go.

:thumbsup: Thanks, tg1911. I never gave a thought to a google search.
I think i'll get rid of them, because i don't remember ever downloading any of them.
I really don't know how they got there, but i'll never use them.
Thanks again for your help. sportster.
