I have a folder I never seen before showing, after I ran ComboFix a few weeks ago. "\Device\HarddiskVolume1\Boot BCD" (file). - I thought it was created by ComboFix so I moved it to a USB I have. I'd like to know where this folder goes or what to do with.
I did some reading and searching in my PC, in this path "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup". #1 String Value name "CmdLine" "ValueData" is "C:\Program Files (x86)\jv16 PowerTools 2012\RegCompact\RegCompact.exe". #1 other String Value "SystemPartition" "ValueData" has "\Device\HarddiskVolume1". I moved "\Device\HarddiskVolume1\Boot BCD" to "D:HP_RECOVERY" i.e. "D:\Device\HarddiskVolume1\Boot BCD". I assume jv16 Power Tools 2012 Registry Compact uses this folder(?) because I ran it yesterday and on reboot/compacting it ran so long, it seems. I turned the PC off. I then moved that folder "\Device\HarddiskVolume1\Boot BCD" to "D:\", ran RegCompact again and all went fair. My PC seems to boot slower and run slower. - I've looked high & low to resolve this w/o asking for help, until today. Running W7 x64, Thanks in advance,
