XP, 384 Ram, 800 Duron, XP SP2 and W2K SP4 dual boot, on separate disks.

Found the following entries in XP registry in HKCU\software\microsoft\windowsNT\currentversion\W indows

run value held a binary
load value held a binary

unfortunately I deleted the values without making note of what they were, but so far no harm seems to be done.

I would not have expected to find binary values in a Load or Run key. Note that these were not in the Run Key under the XP windows keys, but in the XP registry under windowsNT.

Does anyone know what these entries were for, or what software may have placed them there?
