Hi... had a mistake in my batch file... try this please.

Copy/paste the following text into a new Notepad document. Make sure that wordwrap is turned off.

@echo off
if exist regperms.txt del regperms.txt
For %%i in ("HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run") Do regdacl %%i /L /E >> regperms.txt

regedit /a /e regkey.txt "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"

Notepad regperms.txt
notepad regkey.txt


Save it in the same folder you saved RegDACL in as readperm.bat. Save it as File Type All Files(not as a text document or it wont work).

Open folder you saved RegDACL in. Double click readperm.bat. Notepad will open with regperms.txt and regkey.txt. Post the content please of both files please. If notepad doesn't bring up the text files, open the RegDacl folder and open regperms.txt and regkey.txt yourself.

Thanks!

I just thought I would mention an issue that has been occurring on my computer for quite some time now. I have no idea if it has anything with what we are trying to accomplish but I will throw it out there anyway.

Whenever I start my computer the file "System 32" always opens up. It is not listed as a program or file to open on start up and I may have read something in the past that it has something to do with the Audigy sound card.

Anyway, just tossing that out there. Thanks for all your help.

Thanks for the info... that may have something to do with this reg entry... not sure yet.

Can you check something for me quickly please?

Go to Start>All Programs>Startup Folder... let me know if the System32 folder is listed there.

Thanks!

I just looked a little closer and I do see this on startup:

"RAMASST"

When I right click and check the properties it shows the target as:

"C:\WINDOWS\system32\RAMASST.exe"

RAMASST.exe is a file installed with some DVD burners... do you have one?

Yes, I added a Sony DVD burner about a year ago. I do not recall if this problem started at that time, but it certainly could have.

OK... you could try deleting that shortcut from the Startup folder. Then reboot and see if the System32 folder pops up still.

Not sure if thats the issue though.

If it does solve the issue... test burn a DVD/CD or something and see if you have any problems... if not great! If you do have problems you may need to recreate that shortcut as removing it from starting up has caused issues with some burners.

Copy/paste the following quote box into a new notepad (not wordpad) document.

regedit /e %systemdrive%\regkey.txt "HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1733290971-784569582-2966927733-1005\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"
notepad %systemdrive%\regkey.txt
del /q %systemdrive%\regkey.txt


Save it to your Desktop as regkey.bat. Save it as:
File Type: All Files (not as a text document or it wont work).
Name:regkey.bat

Locate regkey.bat on your Desktop and double-click it. When notepad opens, copy/paste the content in your reply.

When you close Notepad the CMD window will close automatically and the text file will be deleted so copy/paste that info into your reply before closing the notepad window.

Thanks!

That doesn't work. It tells me "Can't find regkey.txt file".
