Thanks so much for taking the time to reply.

 I took your advice.  Jotti reported no threat. I read the text but I cannot detect anything that may suggest a problem but I am not an expert in coding. Is it possible to post this on BC for analysis.

 

Thanks

A .reg is a registry file extension so most likely you would have seen something like: Is that what it looks like?

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SOMEKEYHERE]
"SomeVariableName"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ANOTHERKEY]
"SomeValue"=dword:00000001
