I RECENTY RAN A REGISTRY MECHANIC SCAN, FOUND IN THE 'SOFTWARE LOCATION' THIS:

Location
value
parsed

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.xxxxx\OpensWithList

Really alarmed, that the xxxxx(above), is a FRIEND'S NAME...
Thought...how would he be in this LOCATION?
And why?

Now, I bring it to your attention here, NEEDING HELP!!! Should I be Alarmed, concerned, have this checked out further...investigate? I never made a file, with this name! Nor has this person been at my computer, that I know of! It is a friend of the family, the xxxxx above.
