    Strange registry keys

    I was using Regedit just now and noticed two odd entries I've never seen before with Chinese characters. Google doesn't help because Chinese. Anyone have any ideas? Mostly concerned about malware although there are no symptoms and all my regular scans are fine. See pic...

    Did you try Google Translate? The second one is Chinese for "monkey". 猴

    I can't seem to find the first one, so try putting it into Google Translate to auto detect it.

    If it were my computer, I'd back them up and then delete them. If nothing breaks, you don't need them and probably don't want them.

    I did just that. Nothing seems broken.

    (Google translate sez the second symbol has something to do with brightness and/or smoke. It's pretty vague. But there were still no clues as to the reg entries doing searches)
