looking in the registry for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft i noticed another folder as well as the one i wanted: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\M¡crosoft
which contained several numbered sub folders.

the 'M¡crosoft' bit looks suspicious. is it anything to worry about?

Just had a look in my 98se reg only the one folder. Will check my XP desktop after it's booted

Are you saying there are two HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft folders. I did not think that was possible.

ah, i've caused some confusion, now i've read my post i see that the font has not come out right. the dubious microsoft word is not the same as the genuine one. in my registry the 'i' is different, it looks lower down, almost like a j . definitely odd, a complete set of folders with this name.
