Invalid root in registry key "HKCU\software\wvvwksqg\whhsaeutwh". RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have gone inTask Manager startup as suggested as a suggested solution in a posted forum but I cannot locate this registry key in my startup?  Can it be in a different location or under another name?

    Also I have previously done some changes to my sound to optomize but have since lost sound but earphones work.  I have tried everything suggested and repeated solutions but nothing works...I am at my wits end!

    Thank you in advance

  • I think your search for the subject registry key is a wild goose chase.  I have 5 systems and that key does not exist on any of the 5.

    Have you tried reinstalling the audio driver for your sound problem?
