Well that is interesting. One website suggessted deleting Oleaut32. While you seem to be suggesting that it is important to the computer’s functionality.
There is an item in ‘autoruns’ that allows the owner of the computer to verify the entry. I used this function and sure enough it said that it was verified as Microsoft.
I think with the registry, one best be carefull; presumably the professional programs know what to delete and what to keep. Deleting the wrong key could disable an imporant component of your computer.
