I have an unknown registry entry.
 value name = dGAyObSlqe8KT4ys
 value data = (similar apparent random string)

Neither Ad-Aware, Spybot, nor SwatIt found the registry key.

I found this after my system began doing Crazy Ivans, such as suddenly having a Policy Server login enabled (thus preventing any 'net access).  I did have CheckPoint SecuRemote installed but Desktop Policy had not been enabled on install.

I guess if you were to crack the encryption used on the values you would have a better idea of what the program using it is.  I would think that those are not random strings but encrypted text. Good luck.

This registry key is not created/required by Windows nor the known applications. you may backup the registry and delete the key.
