Regedit - Error Opening Key (Vista 64)
The GMER Rootkit Detector* found a registry key I can't get rid of. It's in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\She ll Extension\Approved. The key is {940E65E3-7266-54B6-85F1-6AE6484CA2E7} and its value is nabjkhjoffopccdbahegcbdeejom.

I get a popup window saying: Error Opening Key and the body says {940E65E3-7266-54B6-85F1-6AE6484CA2E7} cannot be opened. An error is preventing this key from being opened. Details: The system cannot find the file specified.

How can I get rid of this key and what do they mean, "cannot find the file specified"???? If anyone knows what file the system is looking for, I'll go out and create it just so I could delete this &^$*%# key.

Background Info: A while back I tried out a song format conversion program called Tunebite. It wasn't what I was looking for so I uninstalled it -however- unbeknownst to me Tunebite had installed the PixiePack Codec Pack but didn't bother to uninstall it when it was uninstalled. Months later I find the PixiePack Codec Pack and uninstall it -but- I'm thinking the uninstall was faulty because I believe the bad key in question here was generated by PixiePack. I believe this because when I click permissions on the parent (Approved) a strange user briefly shows up and then quickly changes into a Group called NONE. There is no Group called NONE on any of my systems but None is the name of the group that created PixiePack.
