I tried to clear all contents of
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts
then set security permission to the logger user name (Budi) to be clear from:

  • create key
  • set value

and let it inherently apply to all keys under it

But it responds very oftenly with icons flickering / blinking
so I undo the security setting... but wile keeping on registry browsing under this key I came across:

  1. The jpg filetype key and userchoice key were created
  2. On userchoice key the logging username (Budi) ACL was created, and
  3. It's set to DENY on SET VALUE !


Is it just windows 10 behavior or an intruder's been screwing up ?
Please help me.. many thanks in advance

HI abdu,

are you running "msconfig" as Admin?. Have you run an AV scan?. Have you looked through the registry to see if you have any entries that are in other languages?. I found one in Chinese the other day and removed it!. :)
