Hello :)

Just wanted to bring this to the attention of Farbar or whoever else helps develops Farbar Service Scanner (FSS) that LEGACY_Dnscache is only valid in Windows XP Systems (maybe Windows 2000 / ME / 98 / 95 too).

Referring to this key: hklm\system\currentcontrolset\enum\root\LEGACY_DNSCACHE

I had someone running a Windows Vista system run FSS and it reported that this key is missing. Here is the actual log if you wanted to see it yourself.

I understand this tool is always under construction and as always keep up the great work :)

Hello thisisu,

I have the legacy on a Vista Ultimate, but just tested it on a fully updated Vista Home Premium. You are right. De tool is updated to remove that check on Vista.

Thank you for reporting this. Please keep reporting anything unusual.:)
