The other change I have noticed now is that there is a new key in the registry CurrentControlSet002.
This key has very little in it and apparently was created when I did a "last known configuration" when I was having difficulty a week ago with a black screen and unable to boot normally.
Should I leave the key? Should I do a reformat? It won't delete at all.
The computer is running just fine so my instinct is to leave all alone.
I hope I didn't get a virus. However everything seems to be fine right now and actually running a little smoother than it was a week ago so my guess is to leave well enough alone. Just some weird things are popping up.
