Ever since I got a black screen a week ago I have had weird things happening. First I get some sort of migrate for the win.ini and control.ini. I did that and nothing was affected.

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.

Any suggestions/advice?

If it's not deletable it's currently in use. Please don't delete entries out the registry unless you know what you're doing as you can cause more damage than you fix by doing this.
