The OS is Windows 7 Ultimate. And if the OS were recreating the key
how would it know what the old value was prior to my deleting it?
Like if it's value was abcdefg how would Windows know to recreate it
with a value of abcdefg after the computer was taken out of
As for why I want to delete it... it's mostly just an experiment. I
figure editing that part of the registry is likely not going to break
anything so I'm conducting some tests there before trying to mess
around with other parts of the registry. And thus far the experiment
seems to be a failure due to this totally inexplicable behavior.
