Hi - I just posted this in the Win7 forum and it was suggested I post here.

 

I am not having a problem (that I am aware of at least) but while I was looking for something in registry I happened to find this and do not recall ever seeing it before - any idea what the heck it is???

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ƒAƒvƒŠƒP[ƒVƒ‡ƒ“ ƒEƒBƒU[ƒh‚Ŷ¬‚³‚ꂽƒ[ƒJƒ‹ ƒAƒvƒŠƒP[ƒVƒ‡ƒ“

 

It has a folder Manual with sub-folder Settings; both contain same info...

 

Name: (Default) 

Type: REG_SZ 

Data: (value not set)

 

I run scans (SEP) weekly with no problems.  Not sure if this is helpful, but the most recent software that I have added has been adobe creative cloud trials.  I do not use the cloud for anything else and I am careful on where I go, what I open, plugins, privacy, etc.  I try very hard to keep my computer safe.  :-/

 

Windows 7 Pro

Dell Workstation

32 bit

 

Please let me know what/if other info you may need to help me figure this out.  Thank you

Anyone?  No idea or have questions for me?  Apparently someone else had this problem but don;t know what ever happened to him  :-/

 

Maybe I will just set a restore point, then delete it and see what happens...

Are you using EasyConfig,some software packages that use obfuscation to hide or otherwise protect their program.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

The word obfuscate means to make obscure, unclear, alter or modify. This means something is hiding an entry it made by converting the values into a form only it understands/recognizes such as adding entries into the registry in Hexadecimal or special character format. Both legitimate programmers and malware writers have been known to deliberately obfuscate code to conceal its true intention.
 

In software development, obfuscation is the deliberate act of creating obfuscated code, i.e. source or machine code that is difficult for humans to understand. Programmers may deliberately obfuscate code to conceal its purpose (security through obscurity) or its logic, in order to prevent tampering, deter reverse engineering, or as a puzzle or recreational challenge for someone reading the source code.

Obfuscation (software)
 

Obfuscation (in the context of software) is a technique that makes binary and textual data unreadable and/or hard to understand. Software developers sometimes employ obfuscation techniques because they don’t want their programs being reverse-engineered or pirated.

Obfuscation: Malware’s best friend

 

Reverse engineering of software is the process of recovering higher-level structure and meaning from a lowerlevel program representation. It can be used for legitimate purposes — e.g., to recover source code that has been lost — but it is often used for nefarious purposes, e.g., to search for security vulnerabilities in binaries or to steal intellectual property.
